Apple - Almond Salad

We visited the Grand Canyon last weekend.. It was an amazing experience to visit one of the natural wonders of the world. We had a memorable smooth water float trip over the river Colorado running through the canyon. It was great to see the layers of rocks forming the canyon. Overall, it was a memorable trip which will remain in our memories forever.
After the amazing weekend, I felt too lazy to cook an elaborate meal. Also, after eating out a lot, I felt I needed a something very simple. I had not done the week's shopping, so had no vegetables in hand. i just whipped up this simple salad which was filling and light. The salad has a sweet and sour taste. it is filled with the goodness of apples and almonds. The ingredients can be varied according to ones taste.
Ingredients
Apple - 1
Slivered almonds/Sliced almonds - 2 tablespoons
Lettuce
Cabbage
Vinegar - 1 teaspoon
Olive oil - 1 teaspoon
Salt and pepper
Directions
Chop the apples into small cubes. Shredd the lettuce and cabbage.
Combine together the apples, cabbage, lettuce, almonds. Cover and refridgerate until chilled.
Prepare the simple yet delicious dressing with the olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.
Toss the dressing along with the chilled salad.
Enjoy!
