SPROUT SALAD WITH FETA CHEESE AND PEACH HONEY MUSTARD DRESSING

When I worked as a nutritional food consultant back in India, I always told my clients to keep dinners light, and have soups, salads and veggies. I try to keep up to that myself too and off late my husband decided to cut down on chapatis at night as well.

So now I have to think of different, tasty, vegetarian salad recipes, and oh ya not forgetting to add some protein too in the salad. I made this last night it tasted really nice. Looks like I will be making a lot of salads, lets see for how long. Will keep posting all that I try out.




You will need

alfalfa sprouts- 1 cup
cucumbers (diced)- 1 cup
tomato (diced)- 1/2 cup
spring onions (diced)- 1/2 cup
grapes- 5-6
lettuce (chopped)- 4-5 leaves
roasted walnuts- 1/2 cup
feta cheese

for the dressing

peaches (chopped)-1
store bought honey mustard salad dressing- 1 tbsp
red wine vinegar- 1 tbsp
olive oil- 1 tbsp
salt and pepper- to taste
sugar- 1/2 tsp


You have to

  1. in a bowl, mix all the ingredients for the dressing along with the peaches. cover and refrigerate.
  2. mix the lettuce, chopped cucumber, tomato, spring onions, lettuce and grapes.
  3. to serve, add the dressing to the chopped salad.
  4. take a plate, place the alfalfa sprouts. top with the salad, sprinkle the walnuts and then the feta cheese.
enjoy
I loved the mixed flavours of the sweet peaches and the vinegar, along with the texture of the crunchy walnuts and sprouts.
