Café 1001 is a vibrant café, lounge and event space situated halfway up Brick Lane and a perfect spot to relax and unwind. They regularly host live music acts, art exhibitions and film screenings and are a big part of the local arts community that makes Brick Lane so special. There’s a huge selection of snacks including plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, salads and cakes. Juliana, the head chef, is always creating new, interesting and healthy salads and shared a few of her favourite dishes with me. This sweet potato salad has a wonderful fresh and zingy yoghurt dressing, with extra flavour and bite from the guest ingredient, pearl barley. Delicious!
Make the dressing by mixing the yoghurt with the lime zest and juice, olive oil and crushed garlic in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. To assemble the salad, arrange the roasted sweet potato, pearl barley and spring onions on a platter. Drizzle with the dressing and finish with the chopped coriander for a pop of colour.
