i was a little disorganised and lacking motivation tonight... so a creamy cashew based dressing was off the cards. instead i tried a vegan mayo + baharat spice mix blend dressing with my middle eastern (or more so mediterranean) salad bowl medley and was pleasantly surprised.
1/2 cup of red capsicum, diced
2 ripe tomatoes, diced
6 medium cos lettuce leaves, roughly shredded
2 cups of brown rice, cooked
1 cup of lentils, cooked
6-8 olive, sliced (i used kalamata as this was all i had on hand... but green would work great!)
2 tablespoons of raw pepitas (pumpkin seeds)
1/4 cup of vegan mayonnaise (i used praise 99% fat free mayonnaise)
1 tablespoon of baharat (i will post the recipe for this shortly for those keen to blend their own)
sprinkling of nigella seeds (optional)
blend the mayo and spice mix together. toss everything together. dig in!
