3 Unusual Salads to Add to Any Meal

3 Unusual Salads to Add to Any Meal

Posted 2017-10-18 by finyfollow

I like salad however I like ones that have unusual ingredients, and salads are an easy thing to "throw things together" as many salads go well with other fruits and foods.

So I have done three salads that would be suitable for adding to most meals.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes each plus standing
Cooking Time: 5 minutes
Serves: 2 - 4

Salad 1 - Banana and celery
A few lettuce leaves
1 banana (not too ripe)
1 lemon and a bit of water
2 stalks celery
Chives, chopped
¼ cup yogurt

Salad 2 - Coleslaw with pineapple
¼ small green cabbage
About 1 - 2 sticks celery
½ small onion or shallot
225 g can pineapple pieces
Walnut pieces, to taste
¼ cup mayonnaise
About 2 tbsp sour cream

Salad 3 - Orange Coleslaw
¼ cabbage, shredded finely
1 orange, peeled and segmented
¼ cup green capsicum, sliced
¼ cup red capsicum, sliced
¼ tsp lemon rind, grated
1 tsp orange juice
¼ cup yogurt
1 tbsp orange juice
1 tbsp lemon juice
½ tbsp vinegar

For Banana and celery
  • Shred the lettuce leaves finely and peel the bananas.

  • Slice them as per the photo.

  • Soak them in the lemon juice and water for about 5 minutes. Drain and towel dry.

  • Combine the bananas, shredded lettuce and celery.

  • Mix the chives in the yogurt and add a bit of black pepper to taste.

  • Add this to the bananas and celery and mix well.

  • You could also serve this in lettuce leaves, and quantities are whatever you like with this one!

  • For the coleslaw with pineapple
  • Shred the cabbage finely and if you have washed it, dry it.

  • Cut the celery into thin slices and cut the onion also into thin slices.

  • Drain the pineapple.

  • Arrange the walnuts on an oven tray and bake in a moderate oven for about 5 minutes until toasted.

  • Mix the cabbage, celery, onion, pineapple and season with salt and pepper.

  • Combine the mayonnaise and sour cream, add the walnuts to the salad, and add just enough of the dressing to coat the salad lightly.

  • For the orange coleslaw
  • Combine all the ingredients (except dressing).

  • Combine the dressing ingredients, add some pepper and mix.

  • Mix this dressing into the salad and let stand for a while before serving.
