Pomegranate Green Apple Salad - A Jewish Style Salad

This Salad is a Jewish style salad made from Fresh Green apples and Pomegranate.
During my stay in Dortmund Germany, I would be invited for dinner to one of my collegue's home, and this salad used to be her favorite and always part of her huge spread.
She would have the Salad dressing made a few days before, and all she had to do was cut the fruits and dress the salad.
This Pomegranate and Green Apple Salad is a fresh and light salad that is especially good to be eaten after days of heavy binging be it after festivals or after long holidays.
Pomegranates have several health benefits that include reducing cancer risk, Alzheimer's Disease Prevention, Prevention of Osteoarthritis, Lowering Cholesterol and Lowering Blood Pressure.
Green apple benefits are amazing right from weight control to skin lightening and prevention of heart diseases to cancers.
So this is the right salad to eat anytime of the day, anytime of the year.

Serves 1

Vinegar - 1/4 cup Vinegar - I have used Apple Cider Vinegar to enhance the fruity taste and smell
Sugar - 2 tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Dry mustard - 1 tsp
Small onion - 1/2
Olive oil - 2 tbsp
Poppy seeds - 1 tsp
Lettuce - 1 head - I have used Iceberg lettuce
Pomegranate - 1 - seeded
Green apple - chopped or Sliced thinly - 1

In a food processor, blend vinegar, sugar, salt, mustard and onion. After the ingredients are well blended, slowly add in olive oil and blend again. Add poppy seeds and mix well. The dressing is ready. Store in the refrigerator.
Wash and dry lettuce leaves. Carefully remove seeds from the pomegranate.
Just before serving, put lettuce in a serving dish. Add pomegranate seeds. Cut apple into thin strips and add to the salad. Sprinkle some of the dressing on top and toss.
