One of our favorite recipes from Cemaco’s Kitchen and Table Catalog, this salad has a guatemalan touch with the hibiscus infused vinegar. The tartness of the hibiscus pairs perfectly with the Green Salad. Why green, you ask? Well, you have lettuce, green apple and celery. You can even add some green bell peppers if you like.
This salad recipe came together one Sunday afternoon when we had no tomatoes nor carrots for the salad. So we started with the lettuce, then celery for a good crunch, followed by the tartness of the green apples. That’s a good base. To make it better, we added both the grated parmesan cheese and the sliced almonds.
Now, the infused vinegar. We love to have a batch in the fridge at all times, specially during these summer days. This infusion gives this salad a bold and fresh lemon, tart, very berry-full flavor. And adding this to our crunchy salad, makes this combo a winner!
