Apple and French Bean Salad

This creamy and fruity salad is a winner, if combined with a hearty soup, it is perfect for a light dinner. I have used blue cheese dressing along with sour curd with the vegetable and fruit, the pungent taste of blue cheese gives a sharp contrast with the sweetness of the apple. Added some roasted peanuts as well to get that extra crunch. You may use roasted walnut instead of peanut.


  • Apple - 1, cut into wedges
  • French Beans - 100 gms
  • Blue Cheese Dressing - 1 heaped tbsp
  • Curd - 2 tbsp
  • Extra Virgin Olive oil - 1 tbsp
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Roasted peanuts - a handful

Blanch the french beans in boiling water. Mix the blue cheese dressing and curd together with the olive oil. Add 1 tbsp of water to it and whisk. Season with salt and pepper. You may add a pinch of sugar, if you like.
Spoon over the dressing on the apple and french beans. Scatter the roasted peanuts for garnishing.
