Apple, mache, almond and nut salad

Bon anniversaire Dominique !

Today is my (Clotilde) mom’s birthday ! Alors bon anniversaire Maman de la part de tous les deux ! We wanted to do something fun and make a dish with that included ingredients that start with the same letter as each letter in my mom’s name (for example, duck for “d”). However, there are not many ingredients that start with the letter “i” or “u”, so we decided to use “Maman” which means “mom” in French. Today’s recipe is something light: a salad.

Apple, mache, almond and nut salad

Serves 2-4 people


  • Mache (about 200 grams)
  • Apple (2)
  • Mustard (ground) (a teaspoon)
  • Almond (half a dozen or more)
  • Nut (4-5 nuts, we used walnuts)

Wash the mache. Peel and chop the apples into slices (add a bit of lemon juice to prevent oxidation). In a saucepan at medium heat, add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil. Once hot, add the ground mustard and mix for 30 seconds. Add the sliced apple and mix from time to time. Once the apples have softened add them to the salad along with the almonds and nuts.

Bon appétit!

Et encore bon anniversaire!

Yohann et Clotilde.

Why this is good for me:

Mach is full of omega-3s. Almonds and nuts are full of “good” fat.
