You don’t win friends with salad…. well not if you prepare a basic garden salad.

I always love to mix it up with salads, and I when it is a side salad, I generally only use about 3-4 ingredients (but when salad is the main, I’m dumping ehvareething in there!).

Usually the formula is:

  • Nuts
  • Fruit (think apple, orange, strawberries…)
  • Greens

This is an apple and almond salad I made the other day.

Apple and Almond Salad


  • 1 apple (grated)
  • Huge bunch of rocket
  • Big handful of almonds
  • Olive oil and balsamic to dress
