Good evening world 🙂 How art thou?
Summers in Dubai are pretty intense, people often fall sick because of the heat plus food available outside at restaurants/cafes is usually heavy on the body to digest hence making matters worse.
I needed to eat something light and refreshing to combat the heat and its side effects on my body and mind, which takes us to the recipe of the day which is my super crunchy Sprouted Ribbon Salad. Easy to prepare and perfect for summer lunches and dinners 🙂
TIME: 20 minutes
Serves 1 (Double the quantity for more)
1 Carrot- cut in slivers (use a potato peeler, it helps:) )
1 Cucumber-chopped in bite sized chunks
1 tbsp Black Olives- sliced
3 tbsp Mung/Moong Bean/Green Gram Sprouts-these are available in supermarkets, you just need to cook them for a few minutes if you want to remove the raw flavor or you can wash them and just toss them in the salad, tastes great anyway OR if you want to make them at home from scratch, check this out How to get Moong/Mung/Green Gram Sprouts
1 tsp Mixed Herbs Seasoning
Salt (according to taste)
1 tsp Lemon/Lime juice
HOW TO PREPARE:
Take a deep bowl and toss all the ingredients except the seasoning, lemon and salt.
Keep to chill in the fridge. Just before serving add in the seasoning, lemon juice and salt. Mix well and serve. It is easy to pack therefore you can take these for work, picnics etc.
Colorful, nutritious and delicious.Yum!
