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!
