I’ll just have a salad

Hello everyone, welcome back to my blog. If you’ve seen my previous posts you’ll know I’ve posted quite a few salad recipes before because they are healthy, easy to make and look really colourful. Every since I was a kid we have always had salad along with our Sunday dinner and naturally I’ve always enjoyed making it. No cooking is required just the basic skills of peeling, grating and slicing. Over the years I’ve changed the way I prepare it and my current favourite is to grate and cut the salads fairly small then mix everything together. Posting earlier because it’s so warm outside and this is a great side for your dinner, especially in this UK summer heat.

Side Salad Recipe

Ingredients

Lettuce – shredded

Carrot – grated

Raddish – grated

Method

  • Take out the amount you want of each salad, depending on how many people are eating.
  • Wash everything thoroughly and prepare everything, I like to leave the lettuce to dry on a paper towel.
  • Add everything to a bowl and serve alongside your favourite meal.

Remember salads are supposed to be healthy and by adding oils, dressings, croutons and other food item makes it less nutritious overall.

Smart Chicken Salad

I used the leftover chicken filling from the empanadas to make a quick healthy salad.

I’ve used my favourite salad lettuce which I shredded along with grated radish for extra flavour. Mixed together to create a wonderful salad dish perfect to eat alone or part of another dish like I did. There are lots of different colours and textures going on in this bowl however you could make a salad dressing for even more flavour.
