Chicory salad with apple, pineapple and mandarins

Chicory salad with apple, pineapple and mandarins

This chicory salad with apple, pineapple and mandarins is one of my favorite quick toss ups. It’s perfect on a busy day when I don’t have a lot of time to cook.

I love my morning practice; either yoga or High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), followed by some pranayama and meditation. It does mean I’m always have a ‘slow’ start if you look at it from a working point of view. By the time I’ve breakfast it’s around 10 o’clock in the morning. Now I work in the evening as well, but still: there is a lot to do on most days. Some days are so full I haven’t got a lot of time to good. Yet, I want to eat healthy. I’m not too much of a salad fan. Or to be precise my intestines are not too much a salad fan, they like warm and greasy food, but this chicory salad forms an exception. They like it, I like it and it’s nice, quick and you can have the ingredients in your fridge and cupboards for some days, without them getting off.

You can eat this salad as a side dish or as a main dish.

How to make a Chicory salad with apple, pineapple and mandarins

  • Slice the chicory in pieces of about 2,5 by 1 centimeter and trow in a bowl. Stir around so the leaves come of each other
  • Wash the apple. You can leave the peel on, but take out the core and slice it in parts of 2 by 1 centimeter as well
  • Peel the pineapple and slice in the same shapes as the rest
  • Peel the mandarin, take off all the white bits and add to the salad
