Days of boring salads are over! You will definitely love this colourful salad bowl, as it contains healthy, whole and delicious ingredients and it will convince you with both, taste and appearance. You won’t be able to resist these beautiful vivid colours, which invite you to try it. And the taste is just as exceptional. Salad bowl contains lots of vegetables, walnuts and delicious and healthy home-made cashew dressing. Salad is also gluten-free and oil-free.
We love simple and quick meals that are also very healthy and delicious at the same time. This salad is a perfect choice for when we want to enjoy a light and healthy dish or don’t have time to cook for hours and hours, as the ingredients are just sliced and put in a bowl and topped with a dressing that is prepared in just a few minutes. It is also great to take on the go or as a healthy lunch at work or school, as you can simply place it in a container or glass jar and add dressing before eating.
Salad contains only healthy ingredients that go really well together:
- cherry tomatoes,
- red beans,
- walnuts and
- home-made dressing.
It is a very light but filling dish, because it contains walnuts and beans, which are a rich source of protein and cashew nuts, which represent a source of healthy fats. Cabbage and walnuts provide crunchiness, while tomatoes, beans and dressing provide the juiciness of the salad. Dressing is very simple and quick to make, but adds an exceptional flavour to the salad! It is made with cashews, nutritional yeast, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. We use store bought cashew butter, which is very creamy, but you can also make it at home by blending pre-soaked cashews into a smooth cream.
You can eat salad as a main dish, as it contains ingredients that will satiate you well, or you can eat it as a side dish and adjust the amount of salad.
