Cucumber Curl Salad

This post is all about lots of colour and curls,
Bright food, bright tools and simple salad swirls.
This dish is eye candy, quite a work of art,
So without further ado, let’s make a start:

First lets get our veggies all scrubbed and clean
We have a new brush, the friendliest we’ve seen!
Introducing our jolly Joie Veggie Dude
Sure to put anyone in the most happiest mood!


You’ll now need the tool you use to take off potato peel,
We use our Oxo Good Grips ‘Y’ Peeler to begin our meal.
Peel one side so you have a rectangular edge that’s straight
You’ll see the wider the peel, the longer the curl on your plate

Continue making peel strips until you get to the seed,
Then turn it over and continue for as many as you need.

Now carefully take each peel slice and roll it into a curl
If you, roll them tightly with care, they shouldn’t unfurl.

Here is a close up of our completed curl:
Try it yourself! Go on, and give them a twirl
Next you’ll need your tomatoes we like ours from the vine,
Then cut them in half and in quarters, just like you see mine:

Next take a bell pepper, deseed and cut vertically through,
Then cut lots of thin slices and cut them all in to two:


Then take your cooked purple coloured beet
And cut into circle slices so they’re ready to eat.

Then take a small onion and do the same too,
Make lots of circular slices right the way through:

Then take some almond flakes to scatter all on top,
Or any, nut, seed or fruit that you can scatter a drop.


Now collecting your greens in the centre of a dish,
Place the slices and curls around just as you wish.

Then drizzle all over your favourite salad sauce,
I’ll soon add some recipe posts for you of course.

And Voila! There we have it the finished pretty meal,
Oh when pieced all together, doesn’t it look unreal?

Love, The JA Ladies
