Crunchy Apple Salad

I absolutely love the sweet-savoury combo. One of my fav ways to pull it off is to toss some fruit in my salads, drizzle some sweet-sour dressing on there and you’ve got yourself super nutritious salad that doesn’t taste like grass. The tamari roasted almonds in this recipe absolutely maaaaake it. The nice crunch of the nuts and apple with the smooth sweetness of the dressing make it the perfect fall combo. 

Ingredients: (serves 2)

Tamari almonds:

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/2 tbsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil 


  • 1 apple
  • 1/2 med carrot grated
  • 1/4 small onion
  • 1/4 cucumber 
  • 1/2 lettuce head


  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar  
  • 1 tsp honey
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp water 


  1. Place your tamari almond ingredients in a bowl, stir until almonds are well coated and lay out on a baking sheet
  2. Bake almonds at 180C for about 15 minutes until crispy (keep an eye on them, they can burn quickly)
  3. In the meantime, chop and grate your fruit and vegetables for the salad and toss in a big bowl
  4. When the almonds are done, let them cool a few minutes and toss in with the salad
  5. Mix the ingredients for the dressing and pour on top when serving
