Oil-Free Apple & Chrysanthemum Leaf Salad

Oil-Free Apple & Chrysanthemum Leaf Salad

This salad is sweet, bittersweet, fragrant, crunchy, and crisp with egg-free and oil-free macrobiotic mayonnaise.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chrysanthemum leaves (kikuna)
1 bunch
Natural Salt
1 teaspoon
Macrobiotic Mayonnaise (Recipe ID: 710620)
White miso
1 tablespoon
White sesame paste
1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon


1. Wash the chrysanthemum leaves and drain. Add to a ziplock bag or similar and leave them in the refrigerator to crisp. Drain thoroughly just before use.
2. Peel the apples and slice into matchstick shapes. Submerge in water with a sprinkle of salt added in for 2-3 minutes. Drain well.
3. If you use Wao's "Simple Apple Slicing Method" (Recipe ID: 323441), you can cut these apples up quite easily. (You cut it into strips afterwards.)
4. Mix together all of the macrobiotic mayonnaise ingredients. Combine the mayonnaise with the sliced apple and chrysanthemum leaves (torn into bite-sized pieces) and arrange on a plate.
5. Here is the sister recipe to the mayonnaise: "Carrot Salad" (Recipe ID: 714578).
