Description:

As I think about it, were all 5 flavors represented? Sweet - the red grapes, Sour - the lemon, Pungent - the onion, Salty - the sea salt and the sardines, Bitter - the sesame seed (tahini). Someone once told me that if all 5 flavors were represented within a meal, then all major organs within the body have been nourished. (A Chinese philosophy, I suppose?) Obviously, I am no expert. But I can say one thing - That was one healthy lunch!


Best Used By Blood Types:
  • Type A (6 beneficials)
  • Type A Non Secretor (3 beneficials)

  • Type O Non Secretor (5 beneficials)

Category:
  • Salad


Ingredients:
  • one can of sardines in olive oil or water
  • two ribs of celery
  • handful of parsley
  • lemon juice
  • red onion
  • 2 teaspoons of minced garlic
  • tahini (1 - 2 Tablespoons)
  • sea salt
  • red grapes

How to make it:
  1. Dice the celery, parsley and 1/4 red onion.
  2. Drain and mash the sardines.
  3. Add it all together along with salt, tahini and lemon juice. Mash very well and adjust flavors to taste. (I added a little extra salt and lemon juice.) The tahini has a slight bitter aftertaste - so mix well or use a little less.
  4. With some simple red grapes on the side, this was very satisfying.
