Easy

 

 

4 persons

 

Preparation Time : 10 minutes

 

 

Ingredients

100 g bag of mixed washed salad leaves

1 red apple cubed

2 heaped tbs cottage cheese

Fresh Coriander leaves or any other fresh herb

1-2 tbs roasted pine nuts

 

French Dressing

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp Dijon mustard

1 tbs lemon juice

3 tbs Virgin olive oil

 

Method

  1. Empty mixed salad leaves into a basin of salted water together with herb leaves. Leave two minutes and place in salad shaker and wiz. If you don’t have one, place in colander, cover with clean tea towel and shake. You don’t want any extra water in your leaves.
  2. Dry roast pine nuts in a small saucepan. Stand over them while you do this, as they burn easily and you only want them to brown. Toss nuts in pan.
  3. Cube apple. You can leave skin on for colour!
  4. Make up French dressing in a small bowl. Beat until emulsified.
  5. Just before serving, (not earlier or leaves lose their crispiness) place all your ingredients in Salad bowl and toss.
  6. Excellent served with smoked ham!
