Sugar Detox Recipe: Apple Carrot Salad

The thing that makes this recipe amazing is the julienne technique used for the vegetables. Preparing the vegetables this way results in a highly delicate texture which is a delight to eat. Adding the mint gives it a punch and the dressing is a taste-bud explosion.

Ingredients:

  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and finely julienned
  • 1 granny smith apple, cored and finely julienned
  • 2 celery stalks, thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons thinly sliced mint leaves
  • 1 thinly sliced carrot

Dressing

  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • pinch of Celtic sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Method:

  1. To make the dressing, whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  2. In a salad bowl, combine the sweet potato, apple, celery, sesame seeds and mint.
  3. Drizzle over the dressing, season to taste, and serve.

Serves 3

Tip: If you prefer a creamier dressing, blitz the ingredients with a hand held blender until smooth.
