Now the weather is getting warmer I've been trying to mix it up a bit with the evening meals. My goal is to try some new salads and vegetable dishes but here are two I've been making quite often. I will try and find another two favourites to post here next week.
The first salad is a very easy and much loved one in this family (although the kids still aren't completely sure that raw beetroot is something they should have to eat.)
It consists of one grated raw beetroot, a couple of grated carrots, toasted sunflower seeds, chopped mint leaves from the garden and a dressing of natural yoghurt mixed with lemon juice, salt and pepper.
The second salad is just a bowlful of leaves (I use baby spinach, rocket and mesclun from the garden), just-cooked brown lentils, pieces of roasted pumpkin and crumbled feta cheese. I usually make some sort of lemon juice/olive oil dressing for this one.
Do you have a favourite salad right now? I'd love to read your suggestions.
