COVETING H+H // sesame chicken salad with cucumber noodles

- this is the first of a series of blog posts showing the meals I have created inspired by Hemsley + Hemsley, mainly using recipes from their book 'The Art of Eating Well' but also using my own initiative, as I adopt their attitude towards food. They are two sisters based in London who make whole, organic, nutrient filled, delicious homemade foods, free of grain, gluten, high starch and refined sugar -


Firstly I apologies for the crap photos, the only sunlight I get is at the weekend currently, so any photos I take on weekdays are under artificial lights using my phone camera #firstworldproblems.

I was not a big fan of cucumber until I tried this dish. In the same way carrots taste boring when they are cut round, cucumber seems bland when cut in the same way. Maybe it's just me, but using a julienne peeler to turn a cucumber into a big bowl of 'noodles' is so fresh, modern and exciting. But let's not get too carried away; it is just a cucumber.

Until you add chicken, sesame, chili, spring onion, pak choy and coriander. Then it becomes the best salad you've had since summer. 

The recipe can be viewed at Red Online.
