Whoever thinks ‘Salads are dull’ hasn’t tried this fresh and fabulous one!
When people say to me “I don’t like salad”, it always makes me wonder if they consider a limp leaf on a plate with a few slices of tomato and cucumber as what equates to a salad…they really ought to try my favourite one below. Vibrant and fresh – its sure to change their minds!
Summery Watermelon, feta and walnut salad (serves 1)
This is such a delicious, fresh tasting, easy to make salad – you know you’re doing yourself a favour just by eating it! Superb on its own or you can serve as a side dish to grilled chicken, seared tuna steak or even smoked mackerel. For me, this is happy food at its best and really tastes of the sunshine!
