The flavors are deliciously complementary in this minimalist salad. Try using a mixture of lettuces or a commercial salad mix for a variation in flavor.

1 large tart green apple
1/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
3–4 tablespoons seasoned rice vinegar


Wash and dry lettuce and tear into bite-size pieces. Core and dice apple. In a salad bowl, combine lettuce, apple, and walnuts.

Pour vinegar over salad and toss gently.
