Share This Recipe

Serves 4

For the salad:
40 g amaranth
75 g mixed lettuce
1/2 cucumber (diced)
40 g raisins
150 g seedless white grapes
100 g Brie cheese (cut in small cubes)
75 g marula nuts

For the dressing:
1 teaspoon mustard
15 ml olive oil
10 ml balsamic vinegar
1 teaspoon honey (optional)

1. Heat a dry pan on the stove until it is very hot. Throw a handful of amaranth in the pan at a time; it will pop instantly! Make sure they don’t burn!
2. Roast the marula nuts.
3. Combine all the ingredients (except the popped amaranth) in a large bowl.
Whisk the mustard with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey for the dressing.
4. Pour the dressing over the salad and serve the popped amaranth on top.
