Goat cheese and strawberry salad :
Light, healthy and yummy ….
Strawberries are high in vitamins and anti-oxidants.
3 cups lettuce , roughly torn
1 cup strawberries, quartered
1 cup crumbly goat cheese, roughly sliced into rounds, if its too crumbly, it’s okay, they don’t have to look perfect.
12 Melba toast rounds
1 tablespoon lightly toasted pine nuts
1 tablespoon lightly toasted almonds
1 tablespoon chopped walnuts
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tbs honey
1/2 tsp salt
First, place the lettuce leaves in a serving dish evenly, then place the Melba rounds on top, each topped with a good portion of goat’s cheese. Sprinkle the strawberries, pine nuts, almonds and walnuts all over the salad and serve with the balsamic & honey dressing. Enjoy!
Balsamic & honey dressing:
Whisk the balsamic vinegar, honey, olive oil and salt together well and serve!
Avocados with a Red Chili Dressing
We spent a lovely day by the pool today. I got inspired to make some refreshing and light side dishes to accompany our barbeque lunch.
- 2 medium Hass Avocados, peeled and sliced neatly lengthways
- 2 medium red chili peppers of your choice, seeded and minced
- ½ tsp minced garlic
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- 4 tbsp olive oil
- Salt, to taste
- Freshly cracked black pepper
Mix the garlic, minced peppers, lemon juice and olive oil until well-combined. Toss the avocado gently with the dressing. Serve sprinkled with salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
