Healthy Green Roast Beef Salad with Wasabi Peas

easy green veg roast beef salad with noodles and wasabi peas

I love wasabi peas, they are little unassuming legumes that really pack a flavour punch. Normally I pair them with beer because it’s the only thing that will extinguish their fiery goodness, but I’d never though to add them to a roast beef salad until…

I had this delicious and healthy Roast Beef, Broccolini and Wasabi Pea salad at the Museum Harvest Cafe in Lilydale.

I really enjoyed it, and the addition of the Wasabi Peas was genius as salads always need a bit of crunch.

The beef and spicy horserashish covered peas are a classic combination that isn’t hot at all in a salad.
I don’t have the chefs recipe but have written my own version.

I used smoked beef from the deli as an easy alternative to making my own roast beef. It’s a quick and easy healthy salad recipe that would make a delicious lunch or side with a meal. All those greens are good for your insides too!

This salad would be a perfect way to use roast beef leftovers from last nights dinner, and I also think it would work great with leftover roast chicken as well.

Use what you have available, salads are great for mixing and matching.
