I end up making this salad when I’m trying to eat clean. Eating clean is a huge challenge for me as consistency is the key. I also get sick of repetitive textures very soon, so, salads with large leaves that require endless chewing can’t hold my imagination for too long. Finer than a fattoush in texture, this one's bursting with flavour and will make you feel like Popeye at least for a little while.
250g Spinach, julienned
50g Onions, finely chopped
40g Tomatoes, finely chopped
10 cherry tomatoes, sliced into halves
75g Cucumber, finely chopped
50g Fresh coconut, grated
5ml Lemon juice
10g Coriander leaves, finely chopped
10g Extra virgin oive oil
Crushed black pepper
Thoroughly wash the spinach julienne.
Add salt, pepper, paprika and lemon juice to the olive oil; mix well.
In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients and toss in the salad dressing.
