Vegetables, seaweed, apple and seed salad with sweet, tangy dressing

by Alice on aprile 17, 2009

Zucchini, green apple, radishes, wakame, sunflower and sesame seeds flavoured with a sweet and tangy dressing. This is a fresh, healthy, detox salad.

Makes 2 servings.


For the salad

2 medium-sized zucchini

6 radishes

2 green apples (Granny Smith)

1 strip wakame seaweed, about 8 cm long

1 handful black sesame seeds

1 handful sunflower seeds

For the dressing

7 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

juice of 1 lemon

1 pinch whole sea salt

juice of 4 cm fresh ginger root

2 tablespoons maple syrup

2 tablespoons shoyu

½ spring onion, chopped



Shake all the dressing ingredients together in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.


Soak the wakame in filtered or mineral water for 10 minutes. In the meantime, clean all the vegetables, then slice the radishes and ribbon the zucchini the long way with a potato peeler. Peel the apples and cut them into bite-sized chunks. Drain the wakame, discarding the fibrous central stem, and break it or cut it into pieces.

To assemble

In a salad bowl, toss and mix the vegetables, seaweed, and apple. Transfer into individual serving plates,( or keep in the bowl), sprinkle the sunflower and sesame seeds over, drizzle with the dressing and serve.
