Executive chef Arul Santhosh of Olive and Twist Hospitality doesn’t have to think for too long about a healthy recipe to add to our list, as several of us start new diet plans, fuelled by fitness goals at the start of January. He immediately suggests this Super Antioxidant Salad from the Canvas by Sketch menu, reasoning, “We have a lot of people asking what is recommended if they are on a health kick and want to detox, and this salad is perfect for that.” It doesn’t hurt that it is vibrant with colour and will get a thumbs from your stomach as well as your Instagram followers.
