The salads with fruit recipes prepared by Dr. Arantza López-Ocaña for the II Talk on Nutrition & Health are finally here! As you know, the talk was very interesting, both nutritionally and gastronomically. Besides her useful tips on nutrition and health, Arantza brought delicious salads with fruit, which we combined with our fish preserves for a spectacular outcome!
Refreshing, complete, easy and quick to make… That’s why salads are so successful in summer. And in this case, the fruity touch makes them even more interesting. Take note!
Salad with fruit recipes
Quinoa salad with mango, peach, pickled mussels and nuts
This salad was renamed the “orange salad”.
- Cook the quinoa. It is now even available in cups for microwaves. Quicker, impossible!
- Add some pieces of peach and mango.
- Crack and add the nuts.
- Finish with pickled mussels, to create a contrast with the sweet taste of the fruit.
Chickpeas, apple and White Tuna salad
If you don’t feel like eating hot legumes in summer, salads are a great option. You can use chickpeas in jars for your convenience.
- Drain and wash the chickpeas to remove excess salt.
- Prepare a vinaigrette with chives, green and red peppers and pickle.
- Add some pieces of apple.
- Finish with some White Tuna loins.
Cherries, anchovies and yogurt dressing salad
Even though the base of this salad seems a bit more “traditional”, it also has its special touch.
- Place a base of lamb’s lettuce (or the green salad of your choice), tomato and cucumber.
- Add some cherries, which, like other red fruits, has a high content in antioxidants.
- Add some chia, sesame and sunflower seeds.
- Add a natural yogurt.
- Finish with some anchovy fillets.
Finally, you can add extra virgin olive oil and vinegar to taste in the three salads. Delicious!
