Salads Galore!

Salads bring colour, crunchiness, freshness and any amount of an abundance of good things to any table…any meal…any time…

… so here’s a brief celebration of how to make a meal out of salad …’n’…stuff … 🙂

§

New Potatoes in a garlic dressing and scattered liberally with Sumac.

Boil the new potatoes, (get organic and cook them in their skins)… until very tender.

Strain, and allow to cool for 5 mins, letting the excess moisture evaporate…

In a bowl, add a glug or two of olive oil, a big pinch of salt and 3-4 peeled + crushed garlic cloves and a pinch of black pepper.

Place the potatoes in the bowl while they are still warm.

Toss the potatoes in the dressing.

Sprinkle liberally with Sumac – a beautiful lemony peppery spice from the middle east.

Ruby Red Crunchy Salad.

Wash and finely slice half a red cabbage. Then chop the ribbons of cabbage crossways to dice.

Layer in a bowl with:

finely sliced sticks of celery

sliced radish

and pomegranate seeds

Dress with fresh lemon juice and seasonings…

§

Smashed Avocado and Beans with Red Onion.

Place a peeled and roughly chopped ripe avocado in a bowl.

Add about 200gms. of pre-cooked white beans such as cannellini.

Roughly smash the beans and avocado.

Finely slice half a red onion and scatter around the smashed beans/avocado.

Mix a dressing of garlic, olive oil, balsamic vinegar salt and pepper.

Pour over the bean and avocado salad.
