The 6′ Salad

Yesterday, I got some last minute work and totally forgot about a friend of mine coming for lunch. I had nothing ready but a pot of germinated brown rice I had cooked the night before for the children. So I made a quick salad with it and decided to call it The 6′ Salad because it was ready in less than 10′. My friend was amazed… and I was even more! Of course, I did not tell her I totally forgot our appointment.


If you are in a rush too, here are the ingredients:

  • A few handfuls of Arugula
  • 1 Cucumber
  • left over of a germinted brown rice meal
  • 1 Greek yoghurt
  • 1 pinch of pink salt
  • 2 pinches of black pepper & pink peppercorn
  • 4 pinches of chia seeds
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 2 tsp of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of hyssop



First comes the arugula. Just put a few handfuls of this vibrant salad green rich in antioxidants into a bowl. Add slices of cucumber, a few tsp of cold already cooked germed brown rice (or whatever you’ve got left from the previous meal – pasta, quinoa…).

In another bowl, whisk 1 one Greek yoghurt with salt, pepper, pink peppercorn, a pinch of hyssop, 2 tsp of olive oil and the juice of 1/2 lemon.

Add this light dressing to your salad.

Sprinkle chia seeds all over it.

Serve… and enjoy!
