Mega Yummy Side Salad that tastes as good as the mains!

So, the other day I made one of my favourite things...ROAST CHICKEN!
Anyhoo... I don't always like to have a big roast type meal with it, how can I do something that's tasty but is light and fresh at the same time...? I came up with this super tasty salad with all my leaves picked fresh from the garden :) I've not given exact measurements as its all to your own tastes really, if you like lots of tomato or cucumber add a little more or miss it out if you don't like it!



Here's the basic recipe...

Salad Ingredients (Feel free to mix it up to suit your tastes)
Salad leaves
Plum tomatoes
1 carrot chopped into large chunks
1/4 cucumber (peeled and seeded) chopped into large pieces
handful of fine beans
edamame beans

Simple Dressing:
2 tbsp garlic infused olive oil
1/2 tbsp chilli infused olive oil
1 tsp coconut sugar/honey
juice of 1/3 lemon
salt and pepper

Method:

  1. Simply toss all the ingredients together with the dressing except the fine beans and the edamame
  2. Fry the fine beans and edamame in a little chilli infused oil with some salt and when you've fried it for a few minutes and the pan is hot, add a splash of water (be careful, it will splash and sizzle!)
  3. Once the beans are cooked, add them to the salad and toss everything altogether!
  4. Serve with some chicken/fish or whatever takes your fancy - I could even eat this just by itself :)
