Apple Carrot and Sweet Potato Salad

Apple 26

Forget the coleslaw! This simple salad is a fresh, crunchy delight: healthy, full of flavour, delicious, yet easy and quick to make. And there is no need for claggy mayonnaise either!

This salad combines the sweet tartness of green apple with fresh crunchy celery, carrots and sweet potato. (Yes you can eat it raw!). Walnuts and pumpkin seeds add extra crunch and nutritional value.

These ingredients are complimented with a gingery nutty tahini dressing. To make this dressing creamier and to boost its nutritional content you can add protein powder; plant-based ones work well (soy and pea), as does whey.

This salad is super as a main dish or as an accompaniment. It also keeps well in the refrigerator for about 3-4 days too.
