Crunchy Mixed salad
I find alot of salads really boring. Who wants to eat just lettuce? Whenever we make a salad we look at what we have in the fridge/cupboard and then work around it.
Here is an example:
For 4 people as an accompaniment, or 2 people as a main.
5 lettuce leaves
1 large beetroot (cooked)
1 large carrot
1/4 small red onion
1 piece of Brocolli
100g cooked chickpeas
1/4 small red cabbage
Chop the carrot finely, or grate it into a large bowl. Chop the onion, finely. Tear the lettuce leaves and add them to the bowl. Add the chickpeas.
Chop everything else into rough chunks (around 1cm) and add them to the bowl. With the brocolli we use everything, stem included – it is lovely.
Mix well. When ready to serve add salad dressing (this one is ideal)
Humpbuckle Hint: don’t be afraid of using vegetables in your salads. Just ensure that hard vegetables (like carrots) are grated or chopped finely.
