Vegetarian Maori Salad

Hey! How goes it?

I hope you have had a great week so far! I have mainly been working, but last night I got to hang out with some of my amigas, and we went to Tchai Ovna for some worldly teas and homely food. But now! To the recipe....

I changed this recipe a little bit, making it vegetarian - but you can use shredded chicken if you happen to be a carni- or omnivore.

Exciting flavour combinations that I myself didn't know would work so well together! I lightened it up using mainly yogurt instead of all-mayonnaise as well, and it turned out to be really lovely and creamy.

Bon apetit!

PS. Just a warning, this portions is pretty large! But that only means that you have a lovely little serving for later when you're feeling peckish. I had to keep myself from making more later on, so good!

Vegetarian Maori Salad
(Serves 1-2)

1 tsp Garam Masala
1 cup low-fat or vegan yogurt
1 tbsp (light) mayonnaise
150g cooked quorn chicken-style pieces, chopped (or roasted nuts?)
1/2 cup cooked rice
1 small red or white onion, finely chopped
1 celery stick, finely chopped
1 red, green, yello or orange bell pepper, chopped
2-3 tbsp vinaigrette (I used French dressing)
1 kiwi, peeled and diced (you can use 2 if you want!)

Bread to serve (optional)

- If the quorn and rice isn't prepared, make sure to do that first.

- Then, mix the garam masala, yogurt and mayonnaise in a cup or bowl and set aside.

- Wash and prepare the vegetables and kiwi, and stir in the dressing, garam masala dressing and then the quorn and rice. Toss well to combine before serving with bread.

I thought this was a great idea, and reminded me a little of a more exotic Waldorf salad if anything!

What is your favourite creamy salad?

    1. I was surprised too when I first saw it! But it's basically a more excotic Waldorf salad, eh? ;) x

  2. Så spennende salat! Jeg liker at du veganiserer så mye ;)
    God helg!
