Just a Simple Salad for Two

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:

Thank You Brockley Market

Smells Like Tomatoes Should Smell

Lovely!

Lovely Local Produce

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.

Crunchy

Slice and add the juicy cumber.

Fresh&Tasty

Add some dill…

Dill Love

…and some spring onions.

Grown in Brockley

Drizzle some oil over the salad, add the cooked mushrooms and chicken, grab a fork and enjoy!

A Plate Full of Goodness

We also scattered some cheese on top…  but you don’t have to!

Yum

Thank you Brockey Market!

    • Hi Arlene, no not all stuff organic, but it’s produced by local people. The cucumber was bought at the organic stall :) I didn’t buy the honey, my friend gave it to me, she worked for a French company who supplies big food chains with best quality stuff. you can have a look here http://www.masdesabeilles.com

    • It was so fresh :) The shop tomatoes usually are raw and smell of plastic :) Charlie has planted some tomatoes in our garden, fingers crossed they grow fast :D
