Chopped Salad with Cucumber, Grapes & Bresaloa + Yogurt Dressing
Needing a break from figs this week, delicious and seasonal as they may be, I decided to take a lovely big bunch of these wonderful Sicilian, seedless grapes. I thought they would make a a great addition to a refreshing green salad. Together with some crunchy green cucumber and a little paper-thin-sliced Bresaola, I had a satisfying and tasty meal rustled together in no time which was healthy and light to boot! I'd say you have gotta love it!
For the lettuce, simply use the leafy ends to line you plate with and finely chop the crispy stalk-ends to make up the actually salad with. Pop these into a bowl and add the cucumber, the grapes (cut in half) and a finely sliced Spring onion.
Sprinkle with some seasoned salt- of course my Salt of the Earth mix is perfect for this ;-), drizzle lightly with olive oil and lemon juice, add some finely chopped chives and oregano and add a couple of tablespoons of yogurt. Stir together well and add a little honey to balance the tangy lemon and the spicy salt... and the result will be pretty wonderful!
With a little bresaola and a slice or two of ciabatta, I would say this was a pretty perfect Summer Supper! I hope you will agree!
