It can be tricky being healthy, because we also want to feel satisfied.  I love, LOVE, L O V E salad, but if I suspect it will leave me hungry, then I’m less likely to choose it.  For me, this recipe ticks all the boxes in that it’s full of whole plant goodness, and it won’t leave you wanting another meal half an hour after you’ve eaten it.

This salad works as a meal by itself, or as a side with Mexican food, such as fajitas or chilli.  Or make it to add a certain something to your weekend barbeque!

  • 2 fresh limes,  juiced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • ½ tbsp Dijon mustard

Method
