Alkalising Silverbeet Salad

Mar 10, 2020

This is one of my favourite salads to make when I feel I need a good dose of raw greens. Silverbeet is rich in minerals and loads of chlorophyll (hence the lovely green colour), which makes it highly alkalising. I also use cider vinegar dressing.

Cider vinegar is a wonderful health tonic for so many reasons. It can aid in digestion, diabetes, weight loss, arthritis, heartburn, gout…the list goes on.


  • 1 Large bunch of Silverbeet (very finely chopped)
  • 1 Red Onion (very finely sliced)
  • ½ C of Roasted Walnuts* (chopped)
  • ¾ of a packet of Feta (150gms approx.)

Optional – you can create maple walnuts but adding two tablespoons of 100% pure maple syrup to a frypan and then adding the walnuts. Cook until golden brown (as they start to candy they cook fast so be sure not to burn them)


  • 1/3 C of Cider Vinegar
  • 1/3 of C of Olive Oil
  • Half a large lemon
  • 2 teas of Dijon Mustard
  • 2 teas of honey
  • 1 clove of garlic (crushed)
  • Pinch of Himalayan rock salt (or similar)
  • Add all ingredients to a jar and shake well


  1. Rinse Silverbeet and chop very finely (like fine coleslaw) and remove the thick white stems.
  2. Chop the red onion very finely in very thin slices.
  3. Mix the above in a salad blow and add crumbled feta and roasted walnuts.
  4. Add your desired amount of dressing to taste.
