This tasty main-dish salad is made extra delicious with a creamy mustard dressing. Serve with lots of crusty fresh bread for a satisfying and healthy meal.
• Instead of fillet steak, use a 300 g lean sirloin steak, cut about 2 cm thick.
• Use the large white radish called daikon instead of red radishes. It is easy to grate by hand or in a food processor.
•Roast beef and rice waldorf:
• Mix 300 g cubed leftover roast beef and 1¼ cups (250 g) brown rice, cooked and cooled, into the apple and vegetable salad. This is also good made with cooked chicken.
• Raw fruit and vegetables are one of the richest sources of essential vitamins and minerals.
• Apples provide good amounts of vitamin C, as well as soluble fibre in the form of pectin. Eating apples with their skin offers the maximum amount of fibre.
• All the sugars in this dish are in the "intrinsic" form, which means they are natural sugars found in fruit (the raisins and apples) and vegetables (the radishes, carrots, yellow capsicum, celery, spring onions and rocket). Fibre in the fruit and vegetables influences the rate at which these sugars are absorbed into the blood.
GI estimate low.
Great recipe, taste is just wonderful. Relatively easy although a fair bit of preparation in the slicing etc but definately worth it!! Hubby suggested wasabi to be added into the dressing next time, might try it...LOL - 29 Jul 2010
Something else. I added lemon juice to the dressing which gave it a tang... - 29 Jul 2010
