Apple-cucumber salad with Melfor Vinaigrette
This refreshingly different salad is inspired by a traditional dish which we often enjoyed with our Mexican friends in California. Called "pico de gallo," it features diced jicama, cucumbers, onions, salt, lime juice and crushed red chiles; sometime fresh chunked pineapple or melon is included too. Our version has more of a European twist, and is flavored by a unique Alsatian vinegar know as "Melfor". Its tangy sweet-sour flavor brings crisp sweet apple, tender delicate cucumber and slightly sharp Vidalia onion together in a harmonious blend of contrasting flavors and textures.
Whisk together, and pour over the salad, toss, cover and chill.
