Sally’s Substantial Salad

June 16, 2015

This article was written for Annabel & Grace, which is now part of Rest Less.

The reason I call this recipe (or, more accurately, a good combo of gorgeous ingredients) is that Sally’s substantial salad is just that. Not a few green salad leaves tossed in French dressing (although that can be just the job sometimes) – no, this is more filling. I had it with cold roast chicken for my lunch today and it was filling, healthy and fresh. Perhaps I should have nicknamed it Sally’s Satisfying Salad? In truth, you can put anything you like in the mix, but these particular ingredients worked very well indeed, so here they are in case you fancy making it:
