i usually do my groceries on a tuesday morning with lion as my co-captain. that means, on monday i often end up scrounging ingredients for dinner. this past monday was no exception. then i found some yummy, seasonally perfect ingredients for a quick and yummy salad!
1 small bunch of parsley
1 handful of dried cranberries
1 small handful of sunflower seeds
1 cup red wine vinegar
1 tblsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp sugar*
1. shred peeled carrots and apples (i left the peel on) into a bowl. choose how many to shred depending on how big the goods are and how many mouths you’re feeding.
2. finely chop parsley.
3. add in rest of ingredients and mix in.
4. make dressing and once all ingredients and mixed well, add to salad. ensure you mix the salad well and let it sit so that the dressing gets absorbed. i let it sit for about an hour.
*if the taste is too tart for your liking, add more sugar and/or a little water.
this was the perfect salad to serve with my mashed potatoes and baked salmon. yum! my kids gobbled it right up, especially lion who still refuses to properly chew foods like raw carrots!
we are definitely having a better today than yesterday!
