Type of Dishsalad


  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled
  • 4 crisp celery stalks, peeled
  • 1 tablespoon golden raisins, plumped for 10 minutes in a little boiling water
  • Generous squeeze of lemon juice
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons "Curry Essence", or to taste
  • Cayenne pepper


  1. To fashion the curry cream sauce for this, you will first need to make the curry “essence”, as I like to refer to it.

  2. A perfect light lunch eaten out of doors-and relatively healthful. So promptly ruin that with a nice cold beer or two.

  3. Cut the apples and celery into thick matchsticks. Carefully mix together with the raisins and lemon juice in a roomy bowl. Chill thoroughly for 30 minutes.

  4. In another smaller bowl, beat together the cream and curry essence until loosely thickened. Fold into the apple and celery, turn into a serving dish, and sprinkle lightly with cayenne.
