Strawberry-cress salad – 7 Ingredients

A couple of weeks ago, my cooker broke down. To make matters worse, it was a Sunday which meant I’d have to wait at least a day to get it repaired unless I was willing to spend a lot of money on an emergency callout fee.

Luckily, only the day before, I’d been reading about the benefits of the raw food diet, and was thinking about how I could include more raw foods in my own diet. Raw foods are very healthy, are loaded with essential nutrients, and – best of all – you don’t need a functioning cooker to make them!

Inspired, and out of necessity, I started searching for raw food dishes that I could make with the ingredients already in my fridge. After a few minutes, I found the lovely recipe I’m going to share with you today. Give it a try – even if your cooker is working fine!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: N/A

Servings: 1


  • 2 tablespoons sprouted buckwheat or puffed quinoa
  • 3 large strawberries with the tops removed
  • 1 avocado, peeled and destoned
  • 1 handful of watercress
  • 1 medium tomato
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh basil, finely chopped
  • Sea salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Dice the strawberries, avocado, and tomato into small cubes. Put them in a bowl and add the watercress and basil.
  2. Pour the balsamic vinegar over the top and lightly toss to combine the ingredients.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve with the buckwheat/quinoa.
