Hi everyone, I hope you are all ready for a new Baking Challenge!
Before I tell you what the new challenge is I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who entered in challenge #12 - Smoothies and cold drinks. I had an amazing 10 entries!
Now I think you have waited long enough.
The theme for this fortnight will be..........
Any kind of salad, sweet, sour, salty what ever you can come up with!
The prize this week is the Australian Women’s Weekly recipe book called Kitchen Garden.
This book contains amazing recipes on salads and vegetables.
It also gives you tips on how to grow herbs and vegetables!
There are things on: Planning for Production
Zucchini and Squash
Preserving the Crop
I decided to show you my everyday mixed salad with a slight twist:
Lettuce- as fresh as possible
Tomatoes - I like to use the small ones, but since we only have big ones in our garden at the moment I used big tomatoes here.
Peas - If you can find sugar snap peas as they are very nice.
Green Pepper - any colour you like.
Feta cheese - (Optional) I don’t use it in everyday salad.
Balsamic Vinegar or lemon juice
Chop everything up in a bowl. Starting with the lettuce, followed by the other ingredients and finish off with the onions on top.
Then to make the dressing. Mix the black pepper and salt in a grinder and sprinkle over the salad.
Then pour the olive oil and then the Balsamic vinegar over.
Mix with two forks.
You can enjoy the salad just like that with your meal or you can fry chicken strips and put that on top. It makes a wonderful lunch or a light supper.
I hope you like it!
