I’ve been trying a lot of new things in the kitchen and when I looked at the recipe for this salad in BBC’s Good Food India magazine, I just wanted to eat it right away. It looked healthy, had the perfect combination of tart, spice and sweet and most importantly seemed like an awesome salad to eat as a snack or lunch.
Here’s how to assemble this salad in 10 minutes – so easy to do, that a recipe is not even necessary 🙂
Step 1: Take two green apples, core them and slice them thinly. Toss them with the juice of a lime. Take a handful of frozen slender french beans or fresh ones and cook them for a few minutes in the microwave.
Step 2: Crush a garlic clove, a tsp of dry roasted peanuts, a hot fresh chili together and mix with a tbsp each of light soy sauce, light brown sugar and lime juice.
Step 3: Toss the output of Step 1 and Step 2 well and arrange on a plate. Garnish with a handful of dry roasted peanuts, a few tablespoons of pomegranate seeds and finely chopped coriander leaves.
We’d love your feedback if you try this out 🙂
