Here's a couple of fresh spring salads to cheer myself up. It's pouring down with rain & I've put two whopper sweet potatoes in the oven to bake.
I oil my spuds with hemp oil to add a nutty taste & rub them with sea salt.
I don't mind if sweet potatoes over cook and leak sticky juice into the baking tray. If I had a red pepper I would roast this too & add it chopped to the lettuce.
Too easy. Baby spinach & chopped gem lettuce mixed together and dressed with lemons & hemp oil.
Spiralized Courgette Pesto
With the small noodle blade, spiralise a whole courgette. If you haven't got one, then you can julienne your courgette but it's seconds work to spiralise & rinse the spiraliser so why wouldn't you!?
Add 2 teaspoons of good pesto & gently mix. Now add grated old Gouda (or any hard, strong, sharp cheese), 2 teaspoons of capers, a handful of pumpkin seeds and a handful of cashews.
Perfect, raw, crunchy & indulgent!
When the spuds are cooked serve with hummus & chopped chorizo & the salady goodness.
