This lovely delicious salad I created a few weeks ago. We came back after a long weekend away & what were e going to eat? We watched in our garden, fridge & pantry & I came up with this:
This was super delicious!
Recipe: For 4 persons
1 ripe cavaillon melon, peeled, deseeded, cut up into parts
organic smoked ham, thinly sliced
3 fresh big juicy tomatoes, from the garden, sliced
a big handful of fresh blueberries, from the garden
2 handfuls of fresh red currants, from the garden
fresh strawberries, from the garden, each hulled & cut up into 2 to 4
big bunch of fresh salad leaves, like friséé, rocket, red roach leaves, … straight from the garden, well washed & spun dry
a fruity extra virgin olive oil
- Take 4 large plates & place a mix of the fresh salad leaves in the middle of each plate. Arrange about 3-4 tomato slices on the outside of the salad. In the middle, you place 2 -4 melon slices. Arrange the smoked ham slices loosely on top of them.
- Place your strawberry pieces & blueberries around the plate, the way you like it! 😉 Scatter your red currants on the plate too, but not too much! You don’t want too much sourness on your plate! Just before serving, drizzle a few drizzles of that fruity extra virgin olive oil all over the top of each plate! Enjoy with loved one’s! MMM! 🙂
