Foodie Friday – Falafel Salad

Most days I have a salad for lunch and this is my current favourite. I think I’ve had it 3 times this week already :-).

These are my basic starting ingredients – butter lettuce, tiny tomatoes, cucumber, diced pineapple, hummus and falafel. The last two are store bought but you could make your own. I believe that every salad NEEDS pineapple.

Salad Ingredients

Today I had just bought a bag of shredded broccoli stems, carrot and beetroot so that was added. I sometimes add corn kernals, cauliflower, sprouts, basically whatever we might have in the fridge.

While the falafel cooks (takes just 1 min in the microwave) I grab a bowl (love these tupperware ones) and place all the salad ingredients.

Then I just roughly  chop the falafels into bite size pieces and add to the salad. Yummo!

I could happily eat this EVERY day. So delicious, yet so healthy!

Mmmm...salad

And best of all the whole thing takes less than 5 minutes.
