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
Lettuce – shredded
Carrot – grated
Raddish – grated
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.
This recipe is a classic burger which is pretty standard and tastes so delicious with great flavour, literally the best I’ve ever tasted 😀 This recipe will work well on a barbecue too but I just baked these in the oven.
350g minced beef
¼ small onion
50g plain flour
Lettuce, washed and shredded
1. Firstly we need to marinade the meat for 3 hours, so it’s full of flavour. Take the minced beef out of the packaging and place into a container which has a lid.
2. Next add as much spices (salt, chilli powder, curry powder) as you want using a spoon to mix everything together. Place in the fridge.
3. Now you can set the oven to gas mark 4 and get a tray ready. Take the meat from the fridge and add the breadcrumbs, egg and flour.
4. Put some gloves on now and mix all of the ingredients together, then shape into even sized burgers and place on the tray.
5. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes and turn over after 20 minutes. In the meantime prepare your toppings and cut the burger buns in half.
6. Take the tray from the oven and leave to cool for a few minutes before adding to the burger so you don’t get soggy lettuce.
