Colors of love… Here’s the recipe for a crunchy, sweet and satisfying veggie salad that is full of color and flavour, including 3 super healthy ingredients:
First, RADISHES: full of vitamin C and B6, fiber, and potassium, as well as good amounts of magnesium and calcium.
ENDIVES: these lovelies can help weight loss, cure acne & asthma, improve digestive and heart health, and they’re great sources of vitamins !
And finally, BEETROOT is a must-veggie because low in fat and packed with vitamins, minerals and powerful antioxidants!
Ingredients (Serves 2)
1/2 beetroot, peeled and cut into small cubes
2 pink endives, cut into pieces
About 3/4 cup of small pink radishes (washed, with roots and leaves removed), sliced
1/4 medium black radish, washed, thinly sliced
1/2 medium pink lady apple, thinly sliced
4 tablespoons of crumbled feta cheese
A handful of walnuts
3 tablespoons of olive oil (I used Huile d’olive AOP Château d’Estoublon. If you’re shopping in Paris, stop by La Grande Epicerie de Paris, at Le Bon Marché)
1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 tablespoons of Acacia honey (by Hédène – can also be found at La Grande Epicerie)
Salt & pepper to taste
Easy, peasy: Combine all the cut veggies in a large salad bowl, drizzle with the vinaigrette and top with apple bits, feta cheese and walnuts. Voilà!
