I know that making salads doesn't involve too much cooking, but I needed a book to give me more ideas than my usual onion, tomatoes, cucumber, pepper and feta cheese salad. As I like variety and trying new things all the time, a book containing 101 salad ideas is right up my street. And I wasn't disappointed. First on the list: anchovy salad - lettuce, tomatoes, anchovies and olives plus white vinegar, olive oil and lemon juice for the dressing. Other salads were equally delicious: green bean & walnut salad, potato salad, and walnut, pear & crispy bacon salad - four down, 97 more to go and yes, there are fruit salads too. Result!
Anchovy salad - anchovies, lettuce, tomatoes, olives + olive oil, white vinegar and lemon juice.
Bean & walnuts salad: boiled green beans, spring onion, garlic, oregano and parmesan cheese + olive oil and white vinegar; topped with toasted walnuts
Potato salad - boiled baby potatoes, spring onion, homemade mayonnaise, paprika & chives.
Walnut, pear & crispy bacon salad - the salad required watercress, but as I didn't have any, I added lettuce. For the dressing: olive oil, lemon juice and honey.
