Apple and Yoghurt Salad with Grapes | Seb Kachumber

This salad is the type of dish that is usually an accompaniment to a meal, and can be served that way or eaten as dessert. It is easy to make and I often make it for “bring a plate” events. It is wonderful garnished with pomegranate seeds and pistachio slivers. If you don’t have pomegranate seeds, soft dried cranberries or barberries are also very good, or drizzle with a little pomegranate molasses. Add a little sugar if you are serving it for dessert.

Fold in the apples and grapes, cover, and chill for at least ½ hour before serving.

recipe notes and alternatives
To serve this as a dessert, add sugar to taste.

While you can use almond meal, I like to grind almonds to a coarse powder, which adds texture to the dish.
