This salad packs a punch and is completely satisfying to eat. I have been on a mad quest lately to send my man away with a packed lunch everyday - to help save money and to sneaky help him lose some of his baby weight ! haha ( terrible I know, Im so mean! )
So a mans salad has to be satisfying and TICK, this one has done the job with the plus of being incredibly good for you. I made this salad one night for dinner and then the left overs feed him for the next couple of days. This is another tip for the packed lunches ; to make it easier for yourself cook bulk or you will forever feel like your slaving away in the kitchen.
1 cup mixed greens - swiss chard, spinach, kale, lettuce, nasturtium leaves, young dandelion leaves
1/2 cup mixed nuts and seeds, finely chopped - brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds
1 cup cooked black rice
1 raw yellow or red beetroot, cut into small cubes
1 prime beef or home kill steak, cooked to preference with pepper then sliced into long strips once rested.
Creamy Green Dressing
1 handful mint or basil
2 cloves ginger
small knob of ginger
1 Tsp raw honey
1 Tbsp ACV ( apple cider vinegar )
Juice and zest of one lemon
pinch of good quality salt
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
First cook your beef and rice. While this is cooling prepare your salad in a bowl. In a blender add all the ingredients for your dressing and blend until smooth. Add more olive oil if needed.
Pour your dressing over your salad and toss until well combined. Lay over your sliced beef and finish with a sprinkle of sesame seeds, plug of good quality olive oil and a sprinkle of sea salt.
