This salad was a complete accident. The result of a late night return flight home from a weekend away, to a “What’s for lunch tomorrow?” question (you have to love that question at 11pm on a Sunday night! That or the question on a Monday morning). As cooking is my meditation- and clearly a sheer joy of mine- buying lunch is always a last resort kind of thing for me.
This salad is simply a fridge clean out and turned super yummy. Super successful.
Here’s the thing. Quinoa is a staple- in most people’s homes (Even my grandmother has quinoa. So so cool!). But if you don’t have quinoa, you have options. Use buckwheat or brown/ black or red rice. Haven’t got the slaw? Use finely sliced spinach, kale or even cos lettuce.
My favorite way to eat this salad is to top it with a gorgeously ripe avocado plus a good splash of extra apple cider vinegar and a sprinkling of salt. Delish. Ready. Steady. Cook the easiest salad you will ever make!
