Rainbow Salad Bowl with Smashed Avocado

Rainbow Salad Bowl with Smashed Avocado made with the colours of Spring, and packed with healthy greens.

Deemed to be one of the worlds healthiest foods – purple cabbage is packed with fiber. A 1-cup serving of chopped purple cabbage provides 2 grams of fiber. it’s also high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A and potassium too.

(Makes 2 bowls)
1/2 cucumber, cut into matchsticks
1/3 broccoli, chopped
handful of dark greens (dark cabbage or any other greens, baby spinach maybe)
1/4 purple cabbage, shredded
small handful of sugar snap peas
2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
2 tablespoons china rose radish sprouts, or any other sprout.
(If you don’t like sprouts, top with almonds, pistachios or pumpkin seeds instead to give a crunch.)
1/3 red onion, finely chopped
1 avocado
sea salt

How to make it…
Steam the broccoli in a small saucepan, for about 5-6minutes. Once it is cooked, immediately rinse with cold water. Chop the cucumber into matchsticks, shred the purple cabbage and de-seed the pomegranate. The sprouts need to be washed and trimmed too. Also finely chop the red onion and set aside. In a small bowl, smash up the avocado with a fork and add the chopped red onion and a pinch of sea salt. Arrange the all the ingredients in a large bowl and enjoy with fresh lemon or lime juice.
