The recipe for this salad was alongside the Oozy mushroom risotto, but it’s so good that I think it stands alone! I’ve had it with pastas, risottos and meats, it’s very versatile. It does have a certain ‘treat’ element to it as you wouldn’t usually make a synned salad, but this is definitely worth it for the addition of pinenuts, sundried tomatoes, and a little oil. However you could remove all the syns and it would still be a nice side salad. If you hadn’t already used your Healthy Extra B for the day you could have a whole 15g of pinenuts all to yourself without having to syn these!
