Mains / Recipes

In the warmer months when you are wanting to make the most of the sun, sometimes you don’t want to spend the whole evening cooking a meal. That’s why it’s always good to have a few quick and easy salad recipes up your sleeve that you can whip up in a jiffy and still impress – this salad is just that.
I love salads that make the most of seasonal produce. Here we have green beans and tomatoes tossed with peas, spinach and feta. Serve with meat of your choice, delicious!

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 125g beans (topped and tailed)
  • ยฝ cup of peas (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds (crushed or use ground coriander)
  • ยฝ tsp dijon mustard
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • handful of lettuce
  • ยฝ small red onion, finely chopped (or use spring onion)
  • ยฝ red chilli, finely chopped
  • ยฝ garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 Tbsp fresh tarragon
  • 125g feta cheese, crumbled
  • 3 tomatoes, deseeded and diced
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 strips of diced, cooked bacon (optional),

 

Method:

  • Boil beans for 3 minutes, place in cold water, then dry on towel. Repeat with peas but they only need 40 seconds.
  • Combine onion, mustard, chilli and garlic.
  • Heat oil in a pan on medium heat. Add coriander and sizzle for a few seconds. Add onion mix and stir for a few minutes.
  • Combine peas, beans, onion mix, tomatoes, lemon zest and lettuce in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Crumble over feta and bacon if using.

Enjoy!
