Rejuvenating Balinese green apple salad

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (from about 6 limes)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fish sauce (if unavailable, substitute salt)
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 4 Thai bird chilies, thinly sliced
  • half of a small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 Granny Smith apples
  • 2-4 tablespoons shelled, roasted peanuts, crushed

Directions

  1. Make the dressing first so flavors have time to blend. Combine first four ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Add sliced chilies. Set aside.
  2. Slice onions and set aside.
  3. Crush peanuts. I find it easiest to use a mortar and pestle. Alternatively, place peanuts in a Ziploc bag, seal, and roll with a rolling pin until coarsely crushed.
  4. Core and julienne the green apples and immediately combine with the dressing to prevent apples from turning brown.
  5. Just before serving, sprinkle crushed peanuts on top.
