A meal in a salad.

Posted in Garden Diary by Jane Griffiths on the March 8th, 2021

I love making layered salads – tonight’s began with a layer of cos lettuce, with: 

  • strips of courgette (tossed with herbs de Provence and flour and pan fried in olive oil til just browned).
  • sweet snow peas, steamed til just tender.
  • mixed cherry tomatoes.
  • grilled haloumi cheese.
  • kalamata olives.
  • shredded basil.
Plus red potatoes, steamed til tender and pan fried in olive oil until crisp, tossed with chives, parsley and sea salt.
All served with a side dressing of mayonnaise, yoghurt, freshly grated turmeric, chopped fresh mint, ground dried garlic, curry powder, salt and chilli flakes.
Most delicious.
