Good Afternoon friends! Happy Friday! I hope this finds you all well and not too crazy and busy with Christmas being only 1 week away!
I think I am all organised here with only a few grocery items needing to be bought next week – of course though before Christmas we have my twins 5th Birthday on the 23rd so I think that helps with my need to be all organised!
As promised last week I wanted to quickly pop by and post these recipes – I know a few of you showed interest in the salad particularly for Christmas Day!
Both recipes are super easy and tasty! I hope you love them as much as we do!
1 cup quinoa
2 medium carrots – grated
1 long cucumber – diced
1 red capsicum – diced
1 yellow capsicum – diced
5 spring onions – sliced into 1/2 cm pieces
½ mini red cabbage – shredded
1 bunch coriander – shredded
2 tblspns fresh lime juice
2 tblspns apple cider vinegar
1 tblspn maple syrup
good pinch salt and pepper
optional: 1 small red chilli finely diced
Cook quinoa as per packet and set aside aside to cool to room temperature.
Prepare all the salad ingredients and put them in a large bowl.
Once the quinoa has cooled down add it to the salad ingredients along with all the dressing ingredients and mix thoroughly.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
- You can swap the quinoa for brown rice if you prefer
- You can swap the maple syrup for liquid sweetener of choice
- Salad will last 2-3 days covered well in the fridge
- The ‘mini’ red cabbage I bought was not much bigger than a large orange (the amount used would have equaled approximately 1 cup shredded)
Wishing you a truly wonderful week ahead! I look forward to connecting with you more again soon.
