Di's Instant Salad Is The Perfect Office Lunch

By Di Westaway | Chief Adventure Chick at Wild Women On Top

There are a couple of ingredients that turn chopped, raw veggies into a super delicious salad but in the end, it's all about the dressing.

Here's how I make a delicious and nutritious salad quickly, without cooking anything. 

Ingredients: 

  • A totally delicious dressing - I like Kewpie Sesame or Luciano Chef White Balsamic, Fig and EVOO. You can buy both at Woolies. 
  • Rocket
  • Avocado
  • Coriander
  • Mint
  • Goat's cheese or wood smoked salmon (or both!)
  • Roast slivered almonds

Method: 

1. Wash and chop the herbs, and combine with rocket in a bowl.

2. Chop avocado into squares on top, then crumble on goat's cheese and/or salmon

3. Drizzle with dressing and sprinkle on almonds. Enjoy! 

Variations: 

  • Add some brown rice (the microwave sachels are great - although mindful of environmental impact of packaging) 
  • Add some falafel or lentil balls in lieu of salmon and cheese for a vegan option
  • If you’re not in a rush, make your own dressing using white or caramelised balsamic vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, fresh squeezed orange, lemon or lime juice and organic honey to taste.
