I don’t know about you, but I can get stuck in a salad rut! The normal lettuce, tomato, cucumber thing or my old favourites. Boring!
I have been on the hunt for some super-healthy but also super-yummy salad recipes now that the weather is far too hot to cook. This is what I have discovered.
Moorish Crunch Salad from Jamie Oliver
300 g carrots, peeled and cut into matchstick-sized batons
150 g radishes
2 crunchy apples
1 small handful raisins/sultanas
1 handful fresh Italian parsley
1 handful fresh mint, roughly chopped
4 T red wine vinegar
8 T olive oil
1 T tahini
2 T sesame seeds, toasted in the oven for about three minutes
Finely slice radishes. Quarter and core the apples and slice finely. Add all these to a bowl with the rest of the ingredients, except for the sesame seeds. Toss together, and season to taste. Serve with sesame seeds sprinkled on top and eat straight away before the salad loses its crunch.
*NOTE: Jamie Oliver’s website was upgraded and this recipe no longer linked, so I found it elsewhere and posted it. 🙂
