Orange salad with cilantro, almond flakes and mustard dressing

This salad is really crisp and fresh. The fresh herbs lift the flavour and the almond gives it a little more substance.
This salad works well as a side dish to Cilantro spiced carrot patties and preferably with a bit of Hummus.

Cooking time 20 minutes for 4 portions

  • 2 oranges
  • 100 ml / 3 1/2 oz sunflower sprouts

  2. Whip the dressing together by mixing all the ingredients.
  3. Mix the salad and the dressing a few minutes before serving.
  4. You have time for a mini-pause before you keep going: Count your breaths, in and out for a minute or two.
