Coconut Salad & Fizz Lunch
15th March 2021
When looking to create a healthy lunch, Coconut isn’t the first ingredient you usually look at, but it is a delicious one, so I decided to find a recipe, altered it slightly and then pair edit with a glass of fine fizz to enjoy, either over lunch or a light dinner.
Coconut is also a great ingredient in fizz cocktails, in being able to bring the delights of a tropical paradise into your glass at home, including Caribbean Fizz Cocktails and 3 Fun & Easy Prosecco Cocktails.

The Coconut Salad
- Red Cabbage
- Olive Oil
How To Make It
- Carefully cut your coconut into small slices.
- Chop a radish or two into small pieces.
- Cut your red cabbage into slices.
- Tear a leaf of lettuce into small pieces.
- Grab a handful of spinach leaves.
- Place all the ingredients into a bowl and mix.

Pairing Notes – “You don’t lose the taste of the salad, each bite is given a Royal coat of light citrus and thanks to the olive oil brings out a golden fruit flavour from the Champagne. Also thanks to the olive oil and Champagne you’re left with a light touch of nuttiness in your mouth after each bite.”
