‘Slawsome Salad

Sorry about the weak pun there – it’s been a long day!

Luckily I was easily able to whip up this delicious coleslaw-esque salad for myself after work. I love making salads because there’s no danger of burning anything and you don’t have to wait for them to cook. This salad is crunchy, tangy, creamy and, most importantly, vegan! πŸ˜€

I didn’t take any pictures, but if you really want to see what it looks like, just make it πŸ˜›

Serves 2

Calories per serving: 115


120g carrots, grated

120g pickled gherkins, chopped

1 tblsp sunflower seeds

100g plain hummus

50ml unsweetened almond milk

1 tsp garlic granules (powdered garlic)

1 tsp lemon juice


  1. Mix together the carrots, gherkins and sunflower seeds.

2. To make the sauce, put the rest of the ingredients in a jar and shake, shake, shake! Or just whisk them up in a bowl with a fork.

3. Pour the sauce over the salad and mix together. It’s delicious as a side to falafels or veggie burgers, or can be enjoyed on it’s own as a light lunch. Yum! πŸ™‚
