Dubai Lunch Salad


At the moment, this is my very favourite salad. I made it a few times for friends and they all wanted the recipe. I thought I’d share the recipe with all of you.
With all its nutritious ingredients, this salad will keep you going the whole afternoon.
Enjoy the energy boost!


Serves 2

What do you need?

• 4 leafs of iceberg salad
• 3 tbsp. Moong sprouts

For the vinaigrette:

• 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil

Take a big salad bowl.
Wash the salad leafs and dry.
Chop into thin strips.
Remove the peel and seeds from the cucumber. Dice.
Cut the tomatoes into halves.

Halve the raisins.
Massage the feta with your hands until crumbly.
Throw the lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, moong sprouts, chopped chives, capers, chicken, feta, pepper, salt and raisins, into the salad bowl. Toss.
