Simple Springtime Superfood Salad

 

IMG_0433

To make a salad super, throw together some refrigerator staples like spinach, peppers and cucumber with a few special ingredients like kiwi, gogi berries, parsley, seeds and hemp oil, and you’ve got yourself a salad to be proud of.

Serve this as a side salad when friends and family start coming round for warm and sunny lunches and dinners, or make ahead and consume it all for yourself over a couple of days for a light lunch.

Ingredients

  • 2 large handfuls of spinach
  • 1 red pepper
  • ½ cucumber, spiralised or chopped
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 kiwi, sliced
  • 1 handful of dried gogi berries
  • 1 handful of fresh parsley
  • 1 handful of seeds. I used these special digestive sauerkraut seeds from Plaw Hatch Farm in Sussex, made by Alex Catchpole.

Dressing:

  • 2 tbsp organic apple cider vinegar
  • 3-4 tbsp organic, raw hemp oil
  • pinch of good quality salt
  • black pepper to taste

How To

Mix all ingredients together and pour over your dressing when you’re ready to eat

Enjoy and feel super this Spring!
