Even though the weather is getting cooler, there is always an appetite for a healthy colourful salad. Being it the main dish or a side salad, it can be enjoyed at anytime of the day!
- a bunch of fresh mixed lettuce leaves, we used a mix of rocket and purple leaf lettuce
- half an avocado, stoned and sliced
- 1 fresh fig, peeled and quartered
- 1 fresh buffalo mozzarella cheese, drained well and sliced
- drizzle of manuka honey dressing (see below for recipe)
- some pomegranate seeds
- Salad bowl
- Small bowl for dressing
Simply set the base of the salad with your lettuce and spread the other ingredients all over, finishing with a drizzle of the manuka honey dressing and scattered pomegranate seeds. You can also add some sunflower seeds for more nutritional value.
Top Tip: The easiest way to clean a pomegranate is to half it and with the back of a spoon, tap its outer shell so seeds will fall easily.
Manuka Honey Dressing
Mix all together the following ingredients:
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 3 teaspoons manuka honey
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 1⁄2 tsp lemon juice
- 1⁄4 tsp dried mustard
- salt and pepper

Saw you on Utube. Interested in those cultural dishes with the flavorful spices. I am in Texas. I am looking for salad dressing ideas and whole food plant based dishes using the flavors of Malta. Thank you. Have a good day.
