Strawberry cress salad
Makes 2 side portions
Takes 5 minutes
2 tbsp amaranth, dry toasted
2 very large strawberries, crown removed
1 Hass avocado, no peel and no pit
1 hand watercress, leaves
1 small heritage green cherry tomato (optional)
2 tsp balsamic syrup / vinegar
2 tsp fresh basil / thyme
Heat your skillet and add 2 tbsp of amaranth. Dry toast for two minutes or so, whilst shaking the pan once every so often to prevent the amaranth seeds from burning. Turn heat off and let cool. Cut strawberries, avocado and (optionally) heritage tomato in cubes. Add watercress and fresh basil. Serve with homemade (sugar-free) balsamic syrup or organic balsamic vinegar. Flavour with sea salt and black pepper. Sprinkle with amaranth and serve.
