Serving up a mix of raw vegetables is always a winner as the flavours are at their pure best. Here I have made spiralled raw vegetables and served them with a simple, tasty dressing along with seeds and nuts to add a crunchy texture. This salad goes particularly well alongside barbecued meat or a freshly baked quiche on a sunny day.
For the vegetables
|1 cup||Baby spinach|
|1||Avocado, cut into cubes|
|1 cup||Nuts, and seeds, mixed and toasted|
|½ cup||Fennel fronds|
For the dressing
- Make the dressing. Shake together the oils, lemon juice, ginger and honey in a small jar.
- Using a spiraliser, make the vegetables into spirals. Alternatively, use a potato peeler then slice into strips.
- In a large bowl, combine the vegetables, spinach leaves, avocado, nuts, seeds and fennel and season salt and pepper.
- Mix the salad with the dressing and serve.
