Middle Eastern Inspired Salad

This salad goes so well with so many different cuisines as it is light and refreshing.

I pack a variety of coloured fruit and veg for their different phytonutrients. The salad is dressed with sumac, a dried berry used in Middle Eastern cooking which has a citrusy flavour and is packed with antioxidants.

Pomegranate molasses is finally added to add sweetness - I prefer Odysea brand from Sainsbury’s as there aren’t any unhealthy additives.

It’s pretty simple to batch prepare ahead and you don’t have to go by my ingredients or quantities. You can use ready-boxed salads to save time and dress them this way. Just add the dressing when about to serve to stop the salad from getting soggy. It’s simple but very moreish!
