Cornflake Capers

After tons and tons of unhealthy (but yummy!) food during the vacation, I was yearning for something healthier. And my wardrobe and waistline were challenging me as well. Having already been dubbed a cow by my family for my love of green leaves, I decided to do something different. 

This is a very simple and quick recipe - and healthy as well - the capers are full of vitamins and anti-oxidants, apples are always good and I used organic cornflakes without sugar and salt. If you use "normal" cornflakes, reduce the amount of salt.


Ingredients 

1 - apple, chopped
2 tbsp - capers
1 - cucumber small size, chopped
2 - tomatoes medium size, chopped
2/3 cup - corn, boiled
2 tbsp - coriander leaves, chopped
1 cup - organic cornflakes (without sugar n salt)

For the dressing

2 tbsp - coriander chutney
1 bsp - ginger, peeled and grated
2 tbsp - honey
1/4 tsp - rock salt
4  tsp - lemon juice
a generous pinch of - red chilli flakes (adjust according to your taste)
salt to taste

Method
  1. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. Toss in the dressing and serve immediately.


Enjoy and have a great weekend!
