Once again I did not have all the ingredients of the recipe in the pantry and a bit of improving was needed. I changed some of the veggies and the fruit. I used chili instead of Cheyenne pepper. I think the dressing turned out wonderful with the cilantro paste. Can you believe I was out of Dijon mustard? Actually still am.
Here you have the recipe in short and it is for four:
Half a sweet potato, half of a large zucchini, one apple, 2 small onions, 1 tsp ground cinnamon and two dried chillies
Spinach and rocket, even kale. A handful of chopped roasted nuts and a handful of chopped dried apricot.
Dressing: 1/2 dl balsamic vinegar, 1/2 dl olive oil, 2 tsp cilantro paste, ground black pepper and 1 tbsp mustard seed
Peel and dice the veggies. Place all but the apple on an baking sheet and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake in 175 C for 20 min. Add the apple. Put all the dressing ingredients in a glass jar, close the lid and shake.
Build the salad on a large plate starting with the greens. Add the warm veggies and mix in the nuts and apricot. Pour in the dressing or half of it so that people can add their plates if they wish.
Serve as such or with a grilled chicken or meat.
