All vegetables, fruits and salads are ‘superfoods’ in my eyes.. After all, they are bursting with nutrients that are beneficial for body and mind, and are relatively low in fat and calories too (and where they are high in fat e.g. avocados, they are packed with good fats to help our bodies *glow* and function as they should). On the subject of ‘superfoods’ I wanted to point out that there is no legal definition of the term, which is why any company can call any food a superfood.. and hence why I’ve named this salad so!

A friend introduced me to this recipe and having tasted it first hand I couldn’t wait to re-make it and share it with you all. This salad really is fabulous as it’s actually packed with vegetables which are simply marinated in a concoction of flavours.. no cooking needed!

This salad keeps well for a good week in the fridge (due to the dressing) and you maybe left with extra dressing at the bottom.. not a problem – simply top up your salad bowl with more veg! No waste here :). This salad is perfect for making on a Sunday as it will last you for many lunches and evening meal’s to come!

 

Ingredients

  • 2 whole broccoli (stalks too!)
  • 1 small head cauliflower
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 1 red/green pepper
  • 1 cup sweetener* (20g) or sugar (200g)
  • 2 tsp mustard/mustard powder
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (125ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 1 small grated onion
  • 2-4 tbsp poppy seeds (optional)

*I suggest a natural, sugar alternative such as stevia (to know more check out my truth about sugar and sweeteners blog)

 

Method

Step 1

Chop the broccoli, cauliflower, celery, pepper and onion and place in a bowl.

Step 2

Add the mustard (powder), vinegar, oil, sweetener/sugar and poppy seeds.

Step 3

Mix!

Step 4

Cover the bowl and pop in the fridge for at least 3 hours, mixing every now and again (I left mine overnight, meaning it was marinating for around 12 hours - delicious!).

I enjoyed my veggie Superfoods Salad with chicken (lightly fried with mustard, vinegar and leeks) and new potatoes.. delicious!!
