Recipe inspiration: Sweet & Salty salad

IMG_4057.PNG

You are starving and don’t have too much time to prepare something “decent” for lunch? Or just feel like some snack but healthy and balanced? A salad‬ mix of sweet and salty flavours containing red currants, blueberries, carrots, raisins and a nice variety of nuts is perfect. As said in another post, sometimes I don’t really know what I’m craving for, so the perfect meal for me is something sweet and salty at the same time. Besides the crunchy nuts add some surprises when biting, and the best of all is that I didn’t need to add a dressing. I loved it, I hope you try it and let me know how it was for you 🙂
