Then cut the peppers first into narrow strips, then dice. Rinse apple well, cut into quarters, remove core and dice flesh. Sprinkle with juice of one lemon to prevent the apple from discoloring. Dice the tongue and mix it into the long grain rice together with the other prepared ingredients.
Mix the vinegar, Tabasco, pepper, soy sauce and oil into a marinade, perhaps seasoning with a little salt. Pour the marinade over the lettuce. Mix well and let it sit for a while.
