    Chinese Salad

    Prepared Oriental Chinese Stir-Fry vegetables, found in the chilled fresh vegetable section, can be used to replace this salad. Simply toss with the dressing.

    • Preparation time: 25 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • For the dressing
    • 1cm root ginger, peeled and diced
    • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
    • Maldon Sea Salt
    • 1 tbsp Waitrose Light Soya Sauce
    • 2 tbsp dry sherry
    • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
    • 100ml sunflower oil
    • 2 tbsp Waitrose Toasted Sesame Oil
    • For the salad
    • 250g pack beansprouts
    • ½ Chinese leaf, finely sliced
    • 227g can water chestnuts, drained and sliced
    • 1 red pepper, cut into strips
    • 3 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


    1. To make the salad dressing, place the ginger and garlic in a jug with the salt, soya sauce, sherry, vinegar and the sunflower and sesame oils. Either blend with a hand-held blender or place all the ingredients into a screw-top jar and shake together until thoroughly mixed.
    2. Place the beansprouts, sliced Chinese leaf, water chestnuts and red pepper into a large bowl with the toasted sesame seeds and mix well. Just before serving, pour the dressing over the salad and toss well.

    Cook's tips

    To toast the sesame seeds, place them in a very hot dry frying pan and heat, stirring, until the seeds start to jump in the pan and begin to brown.
