Flexible festive salad


This flexible salad allows you to add your favourite ingredients to create a simple yet delicious addition to your Christmas spread. Thinly slice apples or pears, fan them out, and display them on the top – for a beautiful salad that only takes minutes to prepare. If possible, you’ll want to prepare your fruit as close to serving as possible so it does not brown.


2 pieces of fruit (e.g apples or pears), sliced

1 handful toasted nuts

Fresh salad greens

Vegan cheese, grated (see recipe ideas)


For the dressing:

1 tsp maple syrup

1 Tbsp olive oil

2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar

Try plant-based!
