This is a great recipe from Leanne Campbell’s ‘The China Study Cookbook’. We simply increased the salt amount to taste . We’ve been serving this in our cafe together with a beetroot hummus, sprouted grain crispbreads, and fresh buttercrunch lettuce – people tend to wrap the salad in the lettuce leaf and enjoy it like a wrap.
It’s a great summery salad, very tasty, great textures, and no refined oil in it.
