A Simple Salad

I made this salad last night to go with some seared steaks and it looked so good when I finished (and tasted even better) I thought I would photograph it - sharing it with you for a quick post today......

It was really easy to make. I just washed & placed a variety of salad leaves in a bowl - I used baby spinach, baby kale, rocket and watercress.

I then chunked up a wedge of stilton and threw it (sorry placed it) on top of the salad along with a good handful of chopped prunes.

The dressing was a lime and parmesan mayonnaise.....

To make this dressing - in a bowl add 2 tablespoons of a shop bought mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons natural yogurt, juice & zest of a lime, 1 tablespoon grated parmesan, 1 clove of garlic crushed, a pinch salt and some freshly ground pepper - whisk it all together to make the dressing.

Spoon the dressing over the salad just before serving........ the prunes went really well with the stilton and this salad complimented the steaks rather nicely.

Have a great Tuesday - I'll be covering how I cooked the steaks a bit later in the week......
