Last night I made the most delicious salad. It was filled with the flavour sof Thailand (only the good ones - you’ll know what I mean if you’ve been there…on a hot day). We had it with steak that had been grilled and marinated in 5 spice seasoning and sesame oil. But you could add chicken, prawns or steak pieces to this and it would be wonderful.
I thought I’d share it with you.
1 small bag of mixed leaf lettuce
1/4 cucumber sliced finely on a mandolin
1/2 red onion sliced finely on a mandolin
1/2 small packet coleslaw
a handfull of sugar snap peas
1 handfull of mint leaves finely chopped
Lay these all out on a large plater. I usually put the lettuce first.
1 small packet of cashews
1 tsp chili powder
pinch of salt
Toast these in a pan on the stove until golden and glistening. Shake chili powder and salt all over them. Then take off the heat and transfer to a plate to cool.
1 small lime (juice and rind)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 garlic clove
1 teaspoon of fresh ginger that has been grated
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon soya sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
Mix all of these together and pour over salad. Sprinkle with cashews and a few sesame seeds.
Happy carb-free eating!
