Green Side Salad.

Wow, I haven’t been updating for a while! I have been very busy with my other blog: http://www.ofhealthandbeauty.co.uk/ so, didn’t have a chance to pop back here. I’m also on my three weeks detox diet, where I eat very simple meals, that are not boring, but not too exciting to post here either. I did make this salad to serve with my fish though, and for a side salad, it was very good. So, here it goes: my healthy green salad, that is low carb, low fat, sugar and salt free, yet tastes good.

Serves 2:

  • 1 cup / 250-300g fresh baby spinach, washed carefully and dried
  • 1 cup /250g fresh rocket, washed and dried
  • 1 handful of fresh blackberries or any other berries you fancy. You can use fruit too, but then the sugar content of this salad will be much higher.
  • 10 cm piece of fresh cucumber, sliced in wedges
  • 10 cherry tomatoes, cut in half

For the dressing:

  • 2 tbsp cold pressed oil of your choice. I used Pistachio oil, which is nutty. Extra virgin olive oil, flax oil or walnut oil would be good here.
  • 1 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar
  • a pinch of dried oregano
  • juice or half lemon
  • freshly ground black pepper
  1. Start by making dressing. Combine all the ingredients in a small jug and set aside to infuse for 10 minutes.
  2. arrange green leaves on two plates and top it up with vegetables.
  3. Pour the dressing evenly on top of the salad and scatter berries over. Serve with dinner or your choice. Mine was marinated and steamed plaice fillets.
