I don’t know if this is something you’ve picked up on but I’m pretty into a peanut dressing at the moment. There was the coconut poached chicken salad, the tofu schnitzel strips and the satay Tofu. Is it getting repetitive? I hope not because this is another good one! This salad is both refreshing and filling and I’m not going to claim it’s traditional. Let’s call it my take on a Gado Gado salad instead.
This is a very summery couscous salad made super delicious with… HALOUMI. Because cheese if life and haloumi is so golden and salty and delicious. It’s one of my favourite cheeses because of how it is transformed in heat. It also takes this salad from side dish to lunch by adding a little extra protein to satisfy.
I am working normalish hours for a change in the lead up to my holiday, and not from my own home, so it means that I actually have the opportunity to test my work lunch recipes on me me me! This salad is super tasty, and the perfect thing to make for work lunches as it takes very little time – ideal right?
This salad is all kinds of delicious! It’s light, has texture and all the flavour thanks to that satay like dressing. I love gently poaching chicken in coconut milk as it keeps the chicken flavoursome and juicy. No dry poached chicken in sight here! Just lean, healthy flavoursome food!
This simple summer salad can be a side or a full meal. I love having it with a couple of soft boiled eggs on top for lunch – so delicious I kind of want to lick the plate. Maybe have, this is a safe private place for my confessions right? It’s really easy to throw together and tastes delicious.
We’re getting a little trashy today! Buffalo chicken for the win. I love love love spicy things and buffalo chicken wings are the bomb. But they’re also not great for you… So I’ve tried to lighten things up a little here with a baked, not fried version of them. And they’re not wings, because I figured they weren’t going to be easy to eat in a salad bowl and this is essentially a ridiculous chicken salad.
I finally tried a slightly different way of cooking tofu and I’m such a big fan! It’s like eating chicken schnitzel – really! I’m clearly excited about this and you should be too. You’ll probably see this rendition popping up again but for now it’s finding a place in a noodle salad bowl and you’re going to love it.
Yes, yes poke is raw fish and this is a vegan recipe. As per usual I’m and playing it fast and loose with the food rules and calling things what I feel like. The steamed and marinated beetroot stands in for the raw fish in this ‘poke’ rendition and it’s full of fresh, light flavours.
