Winter Superfood Salad

This week I started a new dance class, the only downside to this is that it is from 9pm-10pm. So now on a Monday I need to come home from work, eat something quick and light (it is very uncomfortable bellydancing on a full belly!) and then head out again.

So I had a bit of a think and came up with this. And it was so good I think I will do it again and again. I am ever so slightly dubious about "Superfoods" but more by good luck than good management this salad contains broccoli, walnuts and pomegranates, so without trying too hard it's healthy as well. Ish. As healthy as a salad with a melted camembert dressing is going to get.

Winter Superfood Salad

Steam broccoli florets, halved baby carrots and baby leeks until tender but still crisp & divide among bowls. Pour over a melted camembert dressing - the cheese should be a good one, because a really mild, creamy cheese isn't going to provide enough oomph against the vegetables. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and walnuts and serve ASAP.

Yay for dance class! I love finding random dance classes around me like cardio salsa. Also, I think this salad sounds amazing and healthy...even with the cheese dressing. It's got a bunch of my favorite things in it so it can't be wrong.

I refuse to do classes that start later than 1900. Does not work with getting up at 0500!

Esi - it is a good class! Provides a bit of challenge which I need.

Peter - Thanks! It is so much easier just to have stodge in winter that I am quite proud of this.

Mother - I know! I have been resisting going to this class for over a year, but I really had to move up. The beginner/general class was getting pretty stagnant. But it does make getting up at 6.30 a bit tough!
