So every day for lunch I have a salad. I like to get some greens in me plus I’m not a big fan of bread, haven’t been for years. My theory is that I would rather have more of what’s inside the sandwich and leave the bread out! I just reckon it’s a big waste of tummy space.
My salads are pretty basic and vary according to what’s in my fridge, but generally they consist of greens (either mescaline, kale, baby spinach etc) with a chopped tomato, some grated cheese, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, sesame seeds and sprouts. The dressing on my salad is a big part, it has to be super tasty and preferably not from a bottle.
Miso Dressing is a favourite of mine and always put way too much on. The recipe below should last at least 3 days (or 3 lunches) but I barely have enough left for a second salad!
- 1 heaped tablespoon white or yellow miso
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- ½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger
- 1 small garlic crushed
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons low-fat greek yoghurt
Combine all ingredients into a bowl and whisk until amalgamated. Toss over salad.
