Westgate’s Aubergine, Sprouted Mung Bean & Fennel Salad

Salad Bar Only Natural Recipe of the Month

Anyone for Salad?

I’d say that Westgste Design’s brilliant food selection is a leading light locally when it comes to offering a wide choice of tasty food covering wholefood, vegetarian and vegan, gluten free and raw options. Darron’s keen sense of flavor combinations has never let them down. The unrivaled selection of super delicious salads has alway been a major draw for me with offerings as diverse as carrot and beetroot slaw, roasted cauliflower and chorizo, sweet chilli noodles and broccoli and feta salad.
(I can imagine nothing further from the Spartan collection of lettuce, tomato, cooked ham and a boiled egg which was the less appealing ‘salad’ of my childhood.) You can’t imagine my joy on discovering that the already great range on offer has just been increased. I’m talking about the new takeaway salad bar just opened on street level. If you haven’t tried it out it’s a must!
Darron was kind enough to share the following salad recipe with us in case you feel like a little kitchen creativity or it’s one of many you can pop into Westgate and take away any time!

Featured Product – BeeActiv Raw Ivy Honey

Featured Product Beeactiv Ivy Honey

Ivy honey, a new honey for winter.

Featured Product Beeactiv Ivy Honey
Early medicinal texts have highlighted Ivy’s importance as a healer since the 10th Century. It found particular use in the reduction in swelling of the lungs, kidneys, spleen and liver as an anti-inflammatory. More recently, sheep and cattle farmers would feed ivy to “sick” animals. In fact sick animals would often choose to only eat ivy leaves. Nowadays, ivy is sold all over the world as a natural, safe and effective remedy for persistent cough.  
Now there’s a new way to benefit from ivy’s bronchial protective properties in a new honey in Only Natural – BeeActiv Raw Ivy Honey. Conan (academic, beekeeper and founder of the Company) explained some of the science to me.

There have been many scientific studies into the healing and curative benefits of ivy. These have mostly centred around the use of ivy as either an anti-inflammatory or to treat respiratory diseases. The latter has gained the most acceptance in modern medicine. The positive response from users of ivy products is due to compounds naturally present in the plant. The plant saponins “Hederacoside-C” and “alpha-hederin” are believed responsible for this cough relieving efficacy. Importantly, new research into ivy honey has shown that the unique compound “Hederacoside C” is present in pure ivy honey from Ireland and the unique benefits of ivy honey are attributed to this.

The honey has been creamed and has a delicious flavour so, apart completely from helping with coughs and chesty conditions, spreading a little Hederacoside C on your toast in the morning makes for a rather tasty treat! A 227 gram jar retails for €12.95.
