I am always starving on a Saturday afternoon. But I don’t have the desire to take on cooking a meal. And I don’t want bread and jam. And I don’t want MacDonald’s or the likes. And I don’t want loads of dishes and cleaning up to do. I want no-fuss. I want something that is quick and easy and light, because we play tennis afterwards, but it still needs to be filling.

A protein salad like this one works for me. With a banana in the tennis bag.

Make a salad from the following ingredients:

  • Mixed salad leaves, a huge bowl.
  • mixed herbs of your choice
  • Bocconcini cheese
  • a can of “Catalan tuna” (tuna in a tomato sauce)
  • a small can of sweetcorn(or frozen)
  • sun dried tomatoes
  • cucumber sticks
  • dry roasted almonds
  • dried cranberries
  • A vinaigrette made of: sun dried tomato paste, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sherry vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper, small finely chopped shallot.

serves 2

  1. My family knows that poppies are my absolute favorite flower and every year in September they come into bloom and as that is my birthday month. A big bunch poppies is always a part of my gift.

  3. I love the sound of that salad – and I know exactly how you feel on Saturdays! It seems to be a waste to be spending time in the kitchen when the sun is shining outside and you don’t have to be at work 🙂

    And as for those stunning poppies – oh WOW! We don’t really have fields of poppies around here, but I do have a mini poppy field in my garden. I sowed a ton of seeds about 4 years ago and since then they just seed themselves and come up in droves! The bumblebees LOVE our garden!
