Here’s a recipe for a Low GI salad that my wife is now making.
It’s great for lunch, and she says it can be made in advance, which is always cool. I have taken it to work in a lunchbox, so I can definitely say that it keeps.
This recipe serves 2 people, and goes down really well on a Saturday afternoon when you’re looking for a light, healthy meal.
