This is a great recipe to help use up the green leafies, some of your root veg and fruit that may be on its last legs but altogether is a delicious summer salad!


Any salad leaves you have in the fridge... rocket, watercress, spinach, romaine etc...

Grated carrot

Grated beetroot

Sliced apple

Pomegranate (use the juice as a dressing!)

Flaked almonds

Sliced cucumber



For quantities make as much or little as you have ingredients wise in the fridge this can be made into a big batch and enjoyed for lunch/dinner for a few days or simply for a quick dinner for 1!

This is a great antioxidant boost for the body. The pomegranate, carrot, apple and beetroot together are a power house of vitamins and minerals, the beta carotene from the carrots are great for the skin, whilst beetroot is naurally cleansing for the liver. The almonds are a good source of protein and healthy fats! The cucumber is hydrating, again lovely for the skin! Parsley is good for your energy and mint is calming for your gut! An array in benefits for a use it up salad!
