"Everything you love about a Mojito except the rum! After having a few friends over for some mojitos, I was in the mood for salad the next day and had all the right ingredients -- better than the hair of the dog!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I eat salads at least once a day, especially in the summer when the weather is hot, hot, hot, so sometimes I need to switch it up and get inspired by something different, something unique. And this mojito salad certainly is just that. At first bite the salad is sweet, minty, cool, crunchy... but near the end of the plate, the lettuce becomes wilted and heavy from the syrup and the salad seems almost too sweet. Best advice: halve the simple syrup and dress only the apples and cucumbers.
Interesting to try since I love mojitos. Did taste a lot like a mojito, but it was a bit bitter to me and lacked color. The apples were the best part of this, crunchy and mojito-flavored. Maybe using firm red and yellow apples (unpeeled to add some color), and combine the lime zest & juice and simple syrup together first before adding to the salad would help. (I omitted the lemon juice.)
I liked this salad quite a bit. I could not find fresh mint in the little market I went to so I infused some dry mint with the simple syrup that I zapped in the nuker. Fresh, Cool and Yummy! Thank You:)
Very fresh and clean tasting salad! I substituted agave nectar for the simple syrup and halved the amount of apples. It was very good.
I did my own version: no simple syrup (too much sugar) and a regular salad dressing spice-packet with some olive oil, water, and lime juice. But the combination of dressing, lettuce, sour apples, cucumber, and fresh mint leaves was simple and very refreshing! If you're a fan of sour apples and mint, you'll enjoy this salad.
I would substitute frozen limeade concentrate for the limes and simple syrup.
I made this salad for a family gathering, and it was a huge hit. My husband isn't a fan, but that just means more for me! I will be making this often this summer!
I love this salad. So light and refreshing. I wouldn't change a thing. ??
