I love how cheerful this looks...and even more how cheerful I looked after eating it :-)
Marinated vegetable salad (1 large serving)
Ingredients (the amounts below are approximate):
1 tbsp rice vinegar (or white wine vinegar)
1 tbsp light soy sauce (I only had dark soy sauce which worked fine)
1 tbsp hot water from the kettle (to help dissolve the salt & sugar)
a little salt and sugar (I just sprinkled a little in - maybe half a tsp each)
a large handful of salad vegetables (such as carrots, cucumber, radishes, spring onions) cut into strips or ribbons (I used my potato peeler to do this)
Optional: 3 tbsp cooked quinoa, some sesame seeds
- Simply combine the vinegar, soy sauce, hot water, salt and sugar in a bowl,
- Add the vegetable strips and stir to cover evenly in the liquid.
- Leave to marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes (or longer, if you have time).
- Drain off any surplus liquid and serve - I added some cooked quinoa and a sprinkle of sesame seeds to finish this off which worked very well.
