Ingredients

  • 100 g curly kale
  • 150 g fine green beans stalks removed and cut in half
  • 150 g green grapes halved and pips removed
  • 1 green skinned dessert apple cored and diced
  • 50 g watercress
  • 100 g ready cooked wholegrain quinoa
  • juice of 3 limes (approx 4 tbsp)
  • 1 tsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp clear honey
  • 1/8 tsp garlic granules
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • lime wedges to garnish optional

Instructions

  1. Place a large saucepan of water on the hob and bring to the boil.

  2. Add the green beans to the saucepan of boiling water and boil for 3 minutes. Remove the beans from the boiling water using a slotted spoon and plunge into a bowl of cold water.

  3. Add the curly kale to the saucepan of boiling water and boil for 2 minutes. Remove the curly kale from the boiling water using a slotted spoon and plunge into a bowl of cold water.

  4. Using a sieve, strain off the water from both the beans and the curly kale and shake well to remove excess water. Place on a sheet of kitchen paper to absorb any further moisture.

  5. Place the kale and beans in a large bowl and add the grapes, apple, watercress and quinoa.

  6. Place the lime juice, soy sauce, honey, and garlic granules in a small bowl. Mix with a fork and season to taste with salt and pepper.

  7. Pour the dressing over the salad and toss well. Taste the salad and add a little more salt and pepper if needed.

  8. Serve immediately and - optionally - garnish with lime wedges.
