I am always looking for new and exciting salad ideas and this Low Fodmap Rocket Grape Salad is definitely a great recipe.
The vinaigrette is a keeper and can be used on almost ANY salad. I love the combination of chives and Dijon mustard in it. They add that little extra kick to the final dish which is always welcome.
The salad itself ticks all (my) requirements for a good salad and I particularly like the contrast of flavour between the slight bitterness of the rocket/arugula and the sweetness of the grapes. The crunch from the walnuts is a great touch too. Who said salads have to be plain and boring?
This salad is great both with meat and seafood dishes. I particularly like to serve it with chicken. It is also a recipe suitable for people on a Low Fodmap diet, so it’s just perfect for me too. Yay!
You can use any type of grapes you like, however, I think red grapes work best here. Don’t you just like that bright splash of colour on a sea of green?
Enjoy and don’t forget to check out my video recipe and to leave a comment to let me know how you like it!
