As promised, here are two more salads from the spring-time kitchen. Thank you for your suggestions last week- they all sound brilliant, and quite a few are now in my hand-written recipe book. Will be sure to report back soon.
Here are two new salads I made over the weekend. The first was inspired by my friend Jenny, who wrote about her favourite nicoise in my first salad post.
I didn't have quite the same ingredients to hand, so this is how i made it: assorted salad leaves and herbs, steamed baby new potatoes, chopped boiled eggs, pieces of smoked fish. I made a dressing from mayonaise and lots of lime juice to finish.
It consists of baby spinach leaves, a tin of cannellini beans (rinsed several times to free them from that slimy tin liquid), halved olives and chopped pancetta. Over the top: a dressing of olive oil, red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, salt and pepper and chopped herbs.
(Incidentally, have you seen this amazing collection of NS recipes over at the Guardian? I love his writing.)
