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.

Fries and Salad

Hi everyone, I hope you’ve had a great Sunday.

Here is my take on the French Fry Salad. A much healthier version and full of colourful salads. This is a super simple but tasty recipe that you could enjoy for lunch or dinner. I made this meal for myself and did a little bit of each salad I had in the fridge along with 2 potatoes. I have included examples below of how I prepared my salad below but you can do your’s however you like.

Recipe: Fries and Salad (serves 1)

Ingredients

1 sweet potato

1 white potato

Carrot – grated

Lettuce – finely sliced

Yellow pepper – finely diced

Spring onion – finely sliced

Red cabbage – finely diced

Cucumber – finely diced

Raddish – grated

Oil for frying

Method

  • First thing is to prepare your salad, however you like (sliced, diced, chopped). Mix the salad together in a bowl and set aside.
  • Then, chop and wash the potatoes and allow to dry fully before frying in oil, drain off on a paper towel.
  • Put some fries and salad on a plate and enjoy.

Spicy Cauliflower Wraps

Good Afternoon everyone! I hope your Sunday has been good so far. This recipe was one of my favourite vegetarian recipes because it was so simple but full of good flavour. It’s amazing what a little chilli, garlic and cumin will do to cauliflower, these wraps were packed with flavour and left me feeling full. You could also try this recipe using pitta bread instead of wraps.

Recipe: Spicy Cauliflower Wraps (serves 1)

Ingredients

1/2 cauliflower

1/2 tsp chilli powder

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 red onion – finely sliced

1/2 carrot – cut into sticks

1/5 cucumber – cut into sticks

Pine nuts – toasted

2x tortilla wraps

Method

  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 5.
  • Wash and cut the cauliflower into bites sized chunks, put into a bowl and add the oil then season with the chilli, garlic, tumeric, cumin and salt.
  • Place the cauliflower onto a baking tray and cook for 35-45 minutes.
  • Sprinkle some pine nuts into a dry pan and fry until lightly golden, then leave to cool down.
  • In the meantime, prepare the salad, washing and slicing to your preferred way and mix together in another bowl.
  • 5 minutes before the cauliflower is done, place the tortilla wraps in the oven to heat through.
  • When everything is done, fill your tortilla wraps with some salad and cauliflower and a squirt of your favourite sauce (I used tomato ketchup).
  • Fold the tortilla wraps into a parcel, slice in half and enjoy.
