The humble green salad!

The humble green salad!

It’s not rocket science and you may wonder why I’m baby feeding you with this but, you can’t go wrong with a salad.

I want us to remember the humble green salad– for lunches, dinners and as a super side dish.

Get the goodness in.


  • Crispy iceberg lettuce / fresh romaine lettuce
  • 6-8 Cherry tomatoes / 2 vine medium tomatoes
  • 1/2 Cucumber
  • Yellow or red pepper
  • Apple cider vinegar (give it a chance! It’s tart and punches you with flavour. I now grab this instead of balsamic vinegar which is rich in sugar)

Optional toppings

  • Pomegranate seeds
  • Finely chopped red or green chilli
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Toasted pine nuts
  • chopped radishes
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • chopped walnuts or pistachios
  • sliced dates

The list is endless…


Add all of the washed and chopped ingredients into a large salad bowl.

Sprinkle toppings if desired

Keep the Apple cider vinegar or another dressing of choice on the side. There is a tendency to get out of control when we smother a salad in dressing , so keep yourself in check thus helping ingredients remain crunchy.

Use as a side with ANY meal- boom!
