Summery Salads - Apple and nut salad, beetroot and pear, fresh orange coleslaw

    

Apple and nut salad


Normally the guys do this with a mayonnaise dressing but we were having coleslaw this day so it seemed a bit overkill. Dixon and I turned to our kitchen guru, Donna Hay and we found a delicious ranch esque dressing. With a bit of improvisation of lacking ingredients, here is our recipe!

Salad
3 apples chunked
250g packet of mixed nuts

Dressing 
3 tblsp milk
1/4 cup (60g) cream
75g crumbled blue cheese
2 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard 
2 tsp chopped spring onions
1 1/2 tsp chopped parsley


Beetroot and pear salad



Ingredients
10 beetroot
820g tinned pear half's 
1 packet of sunflower seeds

Peel the beetroots and boil until tender. Chop up the beetroot and pear halfs into chunks. Sprinkle the sunflower seeds over liberally. This delightful recipes requires no extra dressing. 


Fresh orange coleslaw


The team still weren't happy putting two creamy salads out, so we decided for a fresh orange dressing instead for our coleslaw. Much healthier too!

Ingredients
1/2 white cabbage finely sliced
2 large carrots finely sliced

Dressing
2 Oranges, zest of 1
1tblsp olive oil
2 tsp balsamic oil
Pinch of salt
Pinch of pepper
