Spring Salad - Recipe

As spring is here now and the weather is lovely, I am trying out new salad recipes. Usually when it get hot outside, I can really cook and eat warm food. I usually prefer a nice cold salad with a lovely, creamy dressing instead of warm food. It is fresh and full of good stuff that your body needs. Here is a simple and filling salad. 


1/4 lettuce head, chopped roughly
2 carrots, thinly sliced
white cabbage, sliced
1 tomato

Spices: dried parsley, salt and pepper, herbes de provence, olive oil.


1- Wash the vegetables and chop the lettuce roughly. Peel the carrots and slice them thinly. Roughly wash the tomato and rinse of the Sweetcorn, I am using canned sweetcorn. Slice the cabbage as well, but how thin or rough is really up to you.

2- Mix all the vegetables in a bowl ad drizzle over the olive oil. I am using a spice infused olive oil. Sprinkle over the spices, I did not measure, but eyeballed it to taste. I would recommend 1 tsp parsley and herbes de provence. 

3- Serve it in a nice deep plate together with 2 tbsp of your favorite salad dressing and a nice bread.
