Vegetable salad

This is hardly a recipe. It is rather an idea to degrease in one of those days when you know you should have a salad and you think you have nothing to preapre it. For those days when you know you need some vegetables, but you do not want or do not know how to prepare them, or do not have time, or you feel like ordering your take away. For one day like that, just think twice.

If you see in the vegetable drawer some carrots, some leeks, a couple of zucchini, maybe even some other vegetable, you will not need anything else. All you need is to peel them with a vegetable peeler into strips, like noodles, so they are so thin that you will not even need  to blanch them. In in a couple of minutes you will have a very light salad.
Add vinaigrette to taste - I have made a vinaigrette with a couple of tablespoons of soy sauce, and sprinkle with sesame seeds to give it crunch.

Vegetable Salad


• Celery
• White onion
• Leek
• Zucchini
• Carrot
• 4 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 tablespoon vinegar
• 1 tablespoon soy sauce
• 2 tablespoons sesame seeds


Wash vegetables thoroughly, dry and cut into strips with a vegetable peeler. Put them on a plate or serving bowl. In a small bowl, mix the dressing ingredients to emulsify. Soy sauce is salty, so it is not necessary to add more salt. Dress, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve with sauce on the side to taste.
