Happy Thursday lovelies! And welcome to a new series I’ll be starting on the blog – Nibbles. It’ll include recipes and restaurant reviews, as well as any other food related news.
So to start off the first Nibbles blog post, I thought I’d do some tasty summer salad recipes, to help all of you who are trying to shake off the Christmas season excess.
|A regular Caprese salad.|
I’ve always loved the regular Caprese salad – mozzarella, basil and tomato, thinly sliced and drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. But one day, browsing Estée Lalonde’s channel on Youtube, I saw she had a video called Salads That Don’t Suck. Intrigued, I gave it a watch and found a version with peach. I don’t really follow the recipe exactly, but basically just throw together the ingredients.
Just layer the slices of peach, mozzarella and basil leaves, drizzle with the balsamic reduction, and sprinkle the crushed almonds over the top. Then, tuck in!
Feta cheese (preferably Danish feta)
Chop up all of the ingredients and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Delish!
Apples (Pink Lady are great for this!)
Cooked bacon bits
Mayonnaise (best to use a tangy mayo)
Chop up all of the ingredients, place in a bowl and mix the mayonnaise in.
And that’s it! These salads are all great for pairing with a braai, with some grilled chicken pieces, steamed fish or even just on their own.
