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.
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.
