Salad Made Easy

Salad Made Easy

Sometimes we like our salads simple, sometimes we throw everything but the kitchen sink in there. Rocket, fennel, Brie, smoked chicken, grapefruit, walnuts and dried cranberries with a honey lemon vinaigrette dressing. How’s that for a bright citrusy lunch?


We know it’s winter/harmattan but make this beautiful summer salad and you’ll immediately be transported to a tropical island in July. Don’t just take our word for it, try it yourselves.


1 cup Olive oil
1/4 cup Lemon juice
1/2 cup Balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup Honey ( or more to taste)

To make your dressing, put all the ingredients in a cup or jar with a lid and shake vigorously till thoroughly combined.



2 handfuls mixed salad greens
1/4 cup chopped nuts
1/4 dried cranberries
6 slices brie cheese
6 or 7 grapefruit segments
1/4 cup shredded smoked chicken

Lay your salad greens in the bottom of a bowl and top with nuts, cranberries, brie, grapefruit and smoked chicken.

Drizzle with dressing and enjoy!

If you pair this salad with a lovely glass of Chianti then you know book!
