Everyday Salad

Josephine Stewart

Salad is another of those everything-but-the-kitchen-sink dishes, where you can buy organic, seasonal fruit and veg and mix and match. This is a quick, easy and healthy salad dish which works great as a side for many mains. 

Everyday Salad

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of salad greens, such as lettuce, rocket or spinach, roughly chopped
  • 1 apple, quartered and then halved 
  • 1 red onion, sliced or roughly chopped
  • 1 cup of cheese cubed, cheddar or parmesan, or feta cheese crumbled
  • 1 handful of cherry tomatoes, halved 
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil 
  • Salt and pepper

Method

1. Prepare ingredients 

2. Toss together in a bowl gently 
3. Drizzle olive oil and toss again, add salt and pepper
4. Serve with a chef-made ready meal, or any kind of main dish 

note: 

Picking different seasonal fruit and vege will make a huge difference for satisfaction and taste. In winter, you can add kale, cabbage and silverbeets. In summer, fruits such as berries and oranges can add a tang to your salads. Snow peas and green beans in the transitional months can add a crunch. When you have more time, you can roast winter root vegetables like carrots and beetroot, as well as pumpkin or sweet potato and make a warm salad.
