Gluten free lunch ideas - crunchy apple salad

Published 11 October, 2006

The husband came up with a great gluten free lunch idea today - crunchy apple salad. It's lovely to have your lunch made for you, but when you've just spent the previous 2 hours painting railings in *sub zero conditions, it's not exactly what you're hankering after. Not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, I heated myself up with a massive mug of instant miso (Sanchi do a great gluten free one - which reminds me of another great gluten free lunch idea, but I'll come back to that another day...)

None the less, here it is;

Crunchy Apple Salad

2 carrots, grated
6 radishes, thinly sliced
2 eating apples, cored and thinly sliced
1 handful sultannas
1 handful of fresh parsley, washed and roughly chopped
1 handful of fresh mint, washed and roughly chopped
Dressing; 4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
8 tablespoons mild olive oil
1 tablespoon tahini
2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds

Put all the dressing ingredients togther and mix well.
Put all the vegetables and herbs into a big bowl and mix through the dressing thoroughly.

I had mine with a little roast chicken, but you could serve it with cheese such as feta or grilled halloumi, and with some gluten free crackers.

So, a great gluten free lunch idea - just might be more welcome in summer!

*okay, I'm exagerating, but it was the minimum temperature that the paint can be applied and boy was I numb about the extremeties!
