Serves 2 – double for 4 (Obviously!)
Ingredients: 3 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Pepper to season
3-4 handfuls of mixed salad greens
1/2 cup crumbled fetta – sheeps, goats, cow – whatever you prefer – can even do vegan with macadamia or cashew cheese!
2 hard boiled free range eggs cut into quarters
Handful of olives
1/2 cup mixed almonds, pecans and walnuts, roughly chopped – or a handful of mixed nuts if you can’t be bothered to buy individual nuts – Brazil nuts are great also!
Method: Combine the olive oil, vinegar and pepper to your taste in a small glass jar and shake until blended. Place all the other ingredients in a bowl, sprinkling the nuts over last. Just before serving add dressing to your taste.
Note: This salad is delicious with some roasted vegetables (carrots, pumpkin, onions, potato, etc). If you do roast some vegetables, toast the nuts on an oven tray in the hot oven for a maximum of 5 minutes, its a delicious way to eat nuts!
