Almost all my lunches are big salads. And they’re almost all raw. That’s how I get more than enough nice yummy veggies into my body. Most of the time I just mix everything I can find together and that’s what I call lunch. Haha! Now I do have a favourite dressing what makes everything taste nice. So if you’re not so good with eating your raw veggies, this might be the solution to that! I like it so much, that I almost want to drink it. Only that would be crazy. You must know that I never was such a dressing/sauce person before. I’d like to eat everything plain, so I can taste the true falvour. But lately I got a bit more into it and found out that a nice sauce or dressing can actually really add to the taste. What means that all the natural flavours all together make a perfect mix. Don’t smother it with sugary, fatty sauces.. that wouldn’t be appropriate and respectful for all those lovely crunchy veggies. Here is my favourite(let’s sat ‘the best’) dressing for any salad:
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp sesame oil
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 clove garlic (mashed)
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp himalayan salt
1/2 tsp turmeric
-Simply put it all together in a jar(with lid) and shake, shake, shake!
-You can keep it in the fridge for a few days.
And just in case you’d like to try it exactly as the picture shows(it’s basically what my salads look like in general), here is the recipe fot the salad too!
150 gr lettuce/spinach
1/2 cucumber (chopped)
10 cherry tomatoes (cut in half)
1 carrot (chopped)
12 sugar snaps (chopped)
4 baby corns (chopped finely)
1/4 red onion (chopped)
1 spring onion (chopped finely)
1 avocado (chopped)
1/2 tbsp sesame seeds
-Mix everything together in a big bowl and add the ‘Dress Appropriate’ dressing (recipe up there ^).
-Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.
