Quickest winter salad
Quickest winter salad. This is what I knock up when we want some fresh vegetables with the least fuss. Delicious with a home-made pork pie (hot from the oven) and chutney plus a little baked potato.
2 celery sticks, peeled.
1 carrot, peeled.
1 eating apple, cored.
2 or 3 Welsh or Spring onions, peeled.
1 handful sultanas or raisins.
1 handful pumpkin seeds, dry roasted.
Finely chop and slice all the vegetables and mix with the dried fruit and seeds in a bowl.
Serve with a vinaigrette dressing or mayonnaise, seasoned to taste.
Keep a supply of roasted seeds handy: place in a pan over a hot heat until they start popping and browning. Remove from the heat and cool before storing.
Add other peeled vegetables to hand e.g. a parsnip, cucumber, even some butternut squash.
