This is a recipe for a very simple and delicious green salad with apples and almonds. The salad takes about 10-15 minutes to prepare and can be served as a side dish for most meat. Because this salad is very light it's a great summer salad and perfect if you are having a barbecue. We normally make this salad if we are in a hurry and still want a healthy element in our dinner. In general we have salads for most of our dinner meals - a salad can be very easy to make and it's a great way of getting a wide variety of different vitamins and oils.
