I had a boring, limited base of vegetables at home - carrots & celery, which I hoped to turn into something tasty for dinner. I looked into the fridge and found apples, pickles and mustard and thought this might work.

So I made a spicy vinaigrette with a lot mustard and mixed it with these vegetables. What's nice about this salad is that it won't go mushy or soft for while and you can make it a day in advance if needed.

4 Servings as a side dish


  • 4 carrots
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 1 apple
  • 2 pieces of pickle

  • 4 tbsp of spicy mustard
  • 1 tbsp of honey
  • 2 tbsp of balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Small handful of fresh herbs (I used cilantro which was slightly overpowering)
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Cut vegetables into bite-size pieces, and pickles into small pieces. Whisk vinaigrette together and taste off with possibly more mustard and salt and pepper. Mix together and preferably cover and let sit in the fridge for a few hours before serving.
