Tonight was going to do shepherds pie and had second thoughts on account of the waves of heat in our kitchen so I raided the crisper and veg basket. More by fortune than judgement it turned out ace! But I want more, especially now I’m getting excited about salad it’s unusual! This made such a gobtastic meal with the spuds, that I nearly forgot about the omelette. All 3 together?
‘Full meal’ salad recipes even better. What have you got? 🙂

I like Pasta Salad, with butter fried chicken, Peppers, Spring Onion, Raddish, Avocado, Tomatoes, and other things that slip my mind. What really makes it though, is tearing up a load of Serrano ham and throwing that in. Just a bit of Mayo mixed in. Yum Yum.Posted 5 days ago

Diced watermelon, crumbled feta cheese and either fresh mint or basil, finely chopped. Decent splash of olive oil over the top. Goes great with meat-heavy BBQs. The feta is salty enough already, you don’t need to add any more salt.
Finely chop an onion and fry it until starting to caramelise. Add a can of cooked+drained lentils, stir for a while then allow to cool. Crumble feta into it, then stir in a couple of teaspoons of mint sauce.
Or the classic: ripe tomato, make sure it’s at room temp if you’ve been keeping it in the fridge, slice it, splash of olive oil and a decent amount of salt.Posted 5 days ago
Chèvre Chaud has to be my favourite. Go for usual mixed salad leaves, tomatoes, cucumber. Toast some walnuts. Toast some sliced baguette and liberally spread goats cheese on and put in the oven or under the grill. Layer on top of the salad, drizzle with honey and decent home made vinaigrette. Finally sprinkle on the walnuts and personally I really like a handful of raspberries too. Best. Salad. Going.Posted 5 days ago

This. Really hard to beat with the right ingredients (as listed).
Did a nice rice salad the other day. It was mostly copied from here.
With added olives. Always something like olives, toasted seeds, lardons for flavour and you can’t go far wrong.Posted 5 days ago

There was an article in the Guardian recently on potato salads
This one is really nice
We’ve recently taken to using Chinese cabbage in salads (it was initially bought to have a go at kimchi). That along with whatever is in the fridge makes up the salad du jour. So tonight:
Shredded Chinese cabbage
Sliced mooli (white radish also bought with kimchi in mind)
Mix the above dress with french dressing.
Add on top sliced beetroot, tomato, sliced new potatoes, more dressing.
Top with tuna mixed with half a tin of mixed beans, sliced olives and capers.
We also had broccoli in danger of going yellow so sliced thinly, dressed with soy sauce/sesame oil mix. Served separately. Surprisingly pleasant raw.

Apple & Walnut salad. (With blue cheese)
I made this ^, with bulgur & dairy-free with Violife Greek white block. 💯 It totally twizzled the tastebuds (in a good way, ohmygod-UH!)
Another addition to any salad that’s been ace= pan-fried almonds w/cinnamon & pan-fried cherry toms
fry the almonds in a splash of olive oil with the cinnamon for two minutes.

Never tried that. Noticed recently that one of our neighbours have figs wasting on the tree, I’ll see if I can beat the birds to a few! #seedymanoeuvresafterdark
Thought about adding some fat juicy sultanas or some of those flame raisins, and maybe a few smoshed hazelnuts.Posted 3 days ago
