Method

  1. FOR THE ORIENTAL DRESSING:
  2. In a mixing jug or bowl, mix Lucy Bee Coconut Sugar with the water to make coconut nectar. Add the remaining dressing ingredients and combine. If you have time, this can be kept in the fridge for 1 hour to allow the flavours to infuse. Set aside, until ready to serve the salad.
  3. FOR THE SALAD:
  4. In a bowl, mix the buckwheat with the sugar snap peas and edamame beans and season to taste with ground Lucy Bee Whole Black peppercorns. Mix the red onion and baby tomatoes into the salad. This can now be stored covered, in the fridge if you’re not serving straight away.
  5. When ready to serve, stir the oriental dressing and drizzle over the salad and garnish with some fresh parsley and spring onions.

Enjoy!
