Dairy-free sauces

Love sauces and sallads – that can brighten up any meal. In Charlottes home there is usually some of that with any meal. Sometimes with as a starter on its own, but usually as part of a main course.

these sallads are easy to serve without bread – just use endive or heart salad. Perfect boats to fill with the goodies

Or you can click it directly on your veggies or serve with a piece of meat.

An absolute favorite is an avocadosallad :

Mix the follwing roughly with a fork

  • 2 x mashed avocado
  • 100g seared feta
  • 1/2 finely chopped red onion
  • and for creaminess you can also add a spoonful of mayonnaise.

If you battle with candida overgrowth, this sauce is not to recommend as it contains feta, which, though not a traditional dairie (not made of cows milk) provide to much lactose.

Another is my favorite tuna sallad:

  • 1 can of tuna (in water)
  • 2 sliced spring onions (use both the green and white)
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 squeezed lemon
  • 1 – 2 dl mayonnaise (depending how liquid you want it)
  • salt and pepper

Or what do you think of Salmon sallad with horseradish, On a bed of spinach and arugula you can put thinly sliced avocado (1/2 per person) and a chunk of sallad made on

  • 150g chopped Smoked salmon
  • 1 tbsp finely grated horseradish
  • 1/2 red onion (finely chopped)
  • 1 dl mayonnaise
  • squeezed 1/2 lemon
  • salt & pepper

Chimichurri – South American green sauce

  • 2 dl finely chopped parsley
  • squeezed juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 finely chopped garlic cloves
  • 1 dl finely chopped shallots
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 dl olive oil

Eggplant stir

A simple eggplant stir on 1 x roasted eggplant, 2 tbsp roasted sesame seeds, 1 tbsp sesame oil, lime juice from 1 lime and a handful of fresh coriander, providing a fantastic nutty experience.

Making this sallad/sauce takes about 30 minutes.

  1. Preheat the oven to 220 degrees celsius
  2. Divide the eggplant lengthwise and cut grid patterns on the cut surface without cutting completely through
  3. Brush generously with olive oil and salt
  4. Place the eggplant in the oven for 20 minutes with the cut surface facing up

meanwhile, mix the lime juice, sesame oil, sesame seeds and coriander in a small bowl and when the eggplant is taken out of the oven, leave it to cool off for 5 minutes. scrape out the meat and mash with the rest of the ingredients. Season with salt and eat lukewarm.
