Super Green Salad with a refreshing lemon dressing

IMG_1025

I am sharing here with you a salad recipe inspired by “Leon’s restaurants”, a naturally fast food company offering mostly mediterranean dishes.

This salad is super green, super healthy, super easy and super yummy.

You can definitely eat this salad as a main dish, accompanied with some bread or you can add some quinoa into your salad which is a great combination too.

The ingredients and the amount are just a guideline, it doesn't really matter how much of each vegetable you take
  1. 3/4 cup of broccoli florets, blanched**
  2. 3/4 cup of frozen peas (defrosting will take place while you make the salad)
  3. 1/2 cup of chopped cucumber
  4. 1/2 a avocado slice or cubed
  5. a handful of mint leaves chopped
  6. 2 springonions chopped
  7. 1/4-1/2 cup of crumbled feta cheese
Dressing
  1. 3-4 tbs olive oil
  2. 1/8 tsp of truffle oil (optional)
  3. 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  4. some drops of vinegar (optional: white whine, sherry or white balsamic)
  5. 1 tsp of mustard
  6. 1 1/2 tsp of honey or maple syrup salt and pepper
Instructions
  1. Mix all the veggies in a salad bowl.
  2. Mix all dressing ingredients in a jar and shake well.
  3. Pour some dressing (not all at once) over the salad, carefully mix.
  4. Add the crumbled cheese over the salad, and add some more dressing if needed.
Notes
  1. ** Blanching: heat water in a pot, once it boils add the broccoli. Boil for 2 -3 minutes, drain and rinse off with very cold water, until the broccoli has cooled off. This way your broccoli stays nicely crisp and brightly green.
  2. Tip: You can add some cooked quinoa to the salad, for more energy in the form of healthy whole carbs.
  3. Tip: When pomegranate seeds are in season, add these to the salad. Great for colour and great for vitamins and extra anti-oxidants.
