What's great about it

This is quite a simple and addictive salad. Once you start eating it - you can't stop because it's so delicious. I love making it for my dinner and serve any leftovers for lunch the next day.

Studies show the health benefits from following a diet rich in vegetables and wholefoods include weight loss, diabetes control, lowered insulin secretion and a reduced risk for diabetes, cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure. Vegetables and whole foods are low in calories yet still fill you up, providing your body with nutrient-dense macro- and micronutrients so you can function at an optimum level. 

Ingredients

Serves 4

2 Lebanese / Persian cucumbers, sliced

60 g baby spinach leaves

2 capsicum, chopped

3 spring onions, sliced

250g cherry tomato, halved

1 bunch parsley, chopped

1 bunch mint, chopped

60 g toasted pine nuts

1 teaspoon sumac

generous pinch of flaked sea salt

Greek yoghurt or goats feta to serve
 

DRESSING
2 tablespoons pomegranate molasses 

2 lemons

2 tablespoons cold pressed olive oil or flaxseed oil

Method

COMBINE cucumber, spinach, capsicum, tomato, spring onion, parsley, mint, sumac, half of the pine nuts and salt into a large bowl.

MIX the dressing ingredients in a separate small bowl, it sould be lovely lemony and tangy. 

POUR the dressing over the salad and toss through.

SPREAD yoghurt onto the base of a serving platter or alternatively you can use feta over the top to serve.

PILE over the salad and top with more pine nuts.

SERVE with a side of lavosh or toasted flatbread and feta if your're not using yoghurt.

EMBSLISHMENTS: ADD the seeds of one pomegranate.
 

Notes and Inspiration

ADD roasted walnuts or toasted macadamias in place of the pine nuts.

Pomegranate Molasses:
Pomegranate molasses is actually a concentrated form of pomegranate juice made by reducing the juice of from pomegranates to form a thick, dark red liquid. You can get it from most Middle Eastern Grocers or gourmet fruit + veggie shops.
