Lettuce with apples, sultanas and pine nuts ( Insalata sfiziosa )
Our original home cooking
Generally, I prepare this green salad for Christmas and when I have guests in autumn and winter. It is quick to make if you use ready-to-eat lettuce that is lettuce in modified atmosphere pack. I prefer to buy green salad in the nearest farmer market but when I have little time I confess it is really handy.

Recipe for lettuce salad with apples, sultanas and pine nuts
- - Soak sultanas in warm water for about 20-30 minutes.
Then squeeze of their soaking water.
- - Generally, I rinse ready to eat lettuce at least once, quickly.
- - Put lettuce in a large bowl.
Add pine nuts, sultanas and apple cubes, sprinkled with lemon juice.
You have to add apple cubes just before serving your side dish.
- - Season to taste with olive oil and salt.
Just before serving
- - Your dish is ready to serve.
- - You can use corn salad (Valerianella locusta) too for this side dish. My tip is to avoid it when you have guests. It is not appreciated by all.
- - Choose the apples you prefer.
- - Lettuce with apples, pinenuts and sultanas is the best side dish for boiled meat, veal cutlets (Milanese style), grilled meat or fish.
- - It's a very tasty dish for a meal, buffet-style. In this case the doses are enough for 12 people.
- - Tip for your everyday menu. Being a rich side dish, prepare it to accompany grilled fish or meat dishes that require little seasoning.
