Ultimate Salad to Boost The System!

chilli salad

If you have a mandolin, you can make up this salad in minutes.

Looks fabulous, absolutley PACKED with goodness to boost the immune system. A terrific lunch on its own or great served with fish or chicken as a side dish. It’s based on a cucumber recipe I saw in the Ottolenghi cookbook, but then I’ve added lots more.

Very finely slice:

  • medium fennel bulb
  • 2 celery stalks
  • half a cucumber
  • medium carrot

Then add sliced chilli, handful of walnuts, some clementine segments, a tbsp of poppy seeds and some chopped coriander.

For the dressing:

  • 4tbsp rice vinegar
  • 5tbsp sunflower oil
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • pinch salt and pepper

Whisk it all up well and then pour over salad. Eat straight away.

You can mix it up a little – try pomegranate instead of the clemantine, or pumpkin seeds instead of walnuts. Whatever tickles your fancy really.
