I am writing this as I am watching Germany vs Portugal playing football in the Euro 2012 so please forgive me if I don’t make sense!
What I wanted to say is that I looove Brockley Market and if I move somewhere else, I might not have any market so close… That would be bad… Almost every Saturday we trot there to get some fresh local produce so we could have a lovely Saturday and Sunday meal. Look what Charlie’s got us today:
What else if not a lovely fresh salad you would make from all that goodness. And so did we. Simple, tasty and healthy!
Warm Salad With Chicken and Mushrooms
100 g chicken
2 handfuls iceberg lettuce
2 fresh tomatoes
a handful of mushrooms
less than half a cucumber
a handful of spring onions
a handful of dill
a dash of olive oil
1tsp honey (with cinnamon)
a drizzle of truffle oil (optional)
salt and pepper to taste
Dice and brown the chicken together with mushrooms for a few minutes with a dash of truffle oil and honey. Our honey happened to be with cinnamon so you can just add some of this spice or leave it out. The truffle oil was a present from a friend, so we thought we gonna give it a try. I like big chunks of iceberg lettuce in my salad so I just tear the leaves. Chop the ripe tomatoes.
Slice and add the juicy cumber.
Add some dill…
…and some spring onions.
Drizzle some oil over the salad, add the cooked mushrooms and chicken, grab a fork and enjoy!
We also scattered some cheese on top… but you don’t have to!
Thank you Brockey Market!
