Simple. Healthy. Tasty. 5 minute Spring salad
The one problem with trying to be healthy, is that everyone assumes it involves copious amounts of salad and nothing else. A girl can't survive on salad alone. But this quick and tasty salad might make me want to give it a try. Its delicious. Its also a good idea with Spring here, and Summer soon...
Ingredients for dressing:
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar or fresh lemon juice
1 garlic clove finely chopped
crushed sea salt and black pepper to taste
Optional: 1 teaspoon whole grain mustard
Greens: Whatever is seasonal. Rocket, lettuce, watercress, spinach
1/4 chopped onion, red onion gives it some nice colour
1/4 cucumber cut lengthways and sliced
1 chopped tomato or a handful cherry tomato
handful of depipped olives
Optional: Half a round of feta
Also optional: a tin of tuna for some protein
Put all the dressing ingredients directly into the salad bowl. Swirl the bowl for about 30 seconds so the oil and vinegar mix. The put the greens in, and the rest of your salad ingredients on top. Toss and eat.
