  • Gently squeeze out the seeds from the tomato, remove its stem and cut into small dices.
  • Clean, wash, drain and dry the lettuce leaves.
  • Mix together the diced apples, tomatoes, grated carrots, chopped olives and mango ginger.
  • Prepare the dressing by whisking together all the dressing ingredients till it emulsifies and changes to a creamy texture. Add this dressing to the salad and quickly mix well.
