Then it was on to the food. Salad definitely isn't a bland diet food -we sampled a quinoa veggie tagine, a ceasar salad and a peppercress and lime cheesecake. With summer and lighter evenings here, salads are a perfect quick and easy lunch or dinner. The key is to make them colourful and varied and the Florette leaves are a great base to get creative with (and a huge time saver).
|The healthiest cocktail I've ever had.|
|The conservatory at Bourne and Hollingsworth buildings was the perfect setting for a salad event - look at all that greenery!|
|Super yummy quinoa tagine.|
|A classic caesar salad.|
|Peppercress and lime cheesecake - a very decadent way to eat salad ingredients!|
So easy to make and it tastes so summery:
1. Arrange Florette Peppery Crispy leaves on a plate. The peppery leaves tone down the sweet strawberries and are the perfect texture and flavour contrast (the key to an interesting and satisfying salad).
2. Halve and de-seed half a cucumber, halve or quarter your strawberries and tear up some mint leaves - scatter on top of the salad leaves.
3. Dress with balsamic vinegar to off-set the sweet strawberries and you're ready to get back to the tennis watching!
