This is a recipe for one of my favourite salads I've made over the past few weeks. We have so many tomatoes in the garden at the moment so it's a great way to use them up. You can serve this salad as a main at lunchtime or it'll make a great side salad to accompany a BBQ.
My blog this week is to help you create an exciting green salad rather than just throwing a bit of lettuce and cucumber into a bowl. It’s simple to prepare, tastes delicious and adds a bit of excitement to your salad bowl.
Kale is a great vegetable, full of beneficial nutrients and in season at the moment, but sometimes it can be a little boring. Normally it is just steamed and added to the side of your meal and you may eat it because you know its good for you but really its not your favourite. Sound familiar?
This salad is really fresh and can be eaten hot or cold. The honey & mustard dressing adds a little sweetness and brings the dish together. Don't worry if you don't have all the ingredients, the kale can be substituted for another green leafy veg and the broccoli for cauliflower or carrots.
Last week one of my boxes contained Sweet Winter Slaw. I've had lots of people tell me how much they enjoyed it so I thought I should share the recipe with you all. The combination of crunchy cabbage, zingy lime, sweet mango and a little chilli hit seem to compliment each other perfectly. The herbs also add a freshness and make it seem okay to be eating a salad on these cold winter days. Mum did say she warmed hers up a little over the weekend and it was really tasty too.
This salad is simple to make and can be eaten hot or cold. There is sweetness from the onions and carrots, a bit of sharpness from the lime, crunch from the cashews and a fresh flavour from pomegranate and mint. The halloumi adds a little indulgence (especially when warm) but can be substituted for feta if you prefer.
This is a very easy salad to make but is really tasty. I made it for our last yoga day and lots of our students commented how much they liked it. Apart from cooking the quinoa (or you could buy ready cooked), you just do a bit of chopping and chuck everything together. The citrus dressing really brings the salad together making it a delicious meal which is also very nutritious.
