Summer is the season for a good salad & I love a good salad.
I had some asparagus that needed to be used, and I needed to eat Protein after an hour and a half of training. So with those two in mind I grabbed the asparagus, a can of tuna & threw together a few more items to make filling yet light salad.
I was cooking for myself tonight, this will serve 1 person for a full dinner. (Mind you I only managed to finish about half of it.)
I put it all on a dinner plate as I go and then it is ready to eat…So what is in it? 1 Large Handful of rocket and baby spinach leaf mix. 1/6 Red Capsicum (Bell Pepper) cut into strips. 6 Asparagus Spears (panfried in olive oil spray for 5 -8 mins until they brown a little) 1/4 of a red onion in slices. (I wilted in the hot pan with the asparagus for a minute) Remove the Asparagus and Onion – add to salad plate. 1/2 can of Chickpeas (200g) (drained, washed and warmed in the pan for 1 min) plate up 90gm Canned Tuna (flaked over the top) 40gm Goats Feta (or regular if you prefer)
I heat and reduce a couple of tablespoons of balsamic vinegar in a pan and then spoon over the top, if you don’t like balsamic substitute for your preferred dressing.
Enjoy you summer salads!
