Nutritionist Alli Godbold shares her amazing spiralized salad with Japanese dressing. We tried this on set after filming and I can guarantee you this is one recipe for the memory bank. The Japanese dressing is so flavoursome that you won’t miss meat at all.
Spiralized salad with Japanese dressing
Ingredients for the salad
1 large carrot
Handful green beans (or mange tout), thinly sliced
Small handful Thai basil leaves, ripped
Handful coriander leaves
handful bean sprouts
Seeds from half pomegranate
50g raw cashews
Ingredients for the dressing
Whizz the dressing ingredients in a blender until smooth.
Use a spiraliser to make the carrot and courgette into spirals in a large bowl and mix. Mix in the beans,herbs, sprouts and pomegranate seeds.
Add the dressing to the salad and toss gently. Scatter on the cashews before serving.
You can also add cubes of stir fried tofu to make this a more substantial meal.
