If you want to do one change at your diet now, start with light dinners. Skip heavy carbs and fats. And start having more veggies for lunch, have more salad. I think 2016 was quite a salad-obsession year. All those beautiful pictures on Instagram, insane variety! And I am obsessed too. And while most of my salads replace a full nutritious meal by size and amount of ingredients, this one is as light and as simple as it gets.
I was told about it by my Godmother – Alla, and I became addicted ever since! It is quick to prepare, it is light but filling and it can even help you with your dessert cravings! Interesting, huh?
The proportion I found best is 1:2, like:
200 grammes of Chinese cabbage (Napa cabbage)
100 grams of pear
2 tbsp mustard with seeds
1 tbsp raw organic honey
1tbsp olive oil
- Finely chop the cabbage and chop pear in squares
- Mix mustard, honey and olive oil. Try to taste, add more mustard if the sauce is too sweet, or the opposite
- Mix all the Ingredients
This simple salad is truly delicious and can also be a good side for chicken breast or, for instance, pork cheeks….or for wine and cheese. You may also want to replace honey with maple syrup!
