Hi and welcome to our Vegetarian Kitchen. There is a hint of Spring in the year - a few daffodils are out in gardens and parks and crocuses are shooting up everywhere. A few sunny days in the South but not quite beach weather. Mother's Day is the theme this week so don't forget your mums on Sunday 18th March. Give them a day off from cooking with our easy recipes.
2 Red Apples (diced)
2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
2 oz Walnuts (chopped)
1 Stick Celery (chopped)
300g Carton Natural Yoghurt
4 Lettuce leaves
Spoon lemon juice over apples to prevent them going brown. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
Arrange on individual plates. Place lettuce leaves on each plate, pile the Waldorf Salad mixture on the lettuce. Serve.
2 Large Red Peppers
3 tablespoons oil
8oz (200g) Rice
1 Onion chopped finely
2 Fresh Tomatoes chopped
