I’m just loving this salad at the moment. It’s crunchy, fresh and super healthy too! It packs a punch and can stand proudly on its own, or can be paired with just about anything. You don’t have to be a health nut to give this one a try.

Serves 4


12 baby pickling cucumbers – thinly sliced horizontally

2 large handfuls of sprouts

3 spring onions – roughly sliced

2 ripe avocados – halved and skinned – use a spoon to scoop out the avocado flesh

Nut mix – sunflower seeds, pecan, salted peanuts, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, and pumpkin seeds


3 parts sunflower oil

1 part filtered apple cider vinegar

½ tsp. crushed garlic

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. cracked black pepper


1 Place the cucumbers slices on a plate.

2 Sprinkle over the spring onions.

3 Arrange the avocados halves around the plate.

4 Place the sprouts in a pile in the middle of the salad.

5 Roast the nuts mix in a dry pan, until just golden – watch carefully so that they don’t burn.

6 Add the a good pinch of salt and pepper to the nut mix.

7 Sprinkle the nut mix over the salad.

8 Combine the vinaigrette ingredients together.

9 Just before serving, pour over the vinaigrette.
