Forever Nigella - Salad Days!

This months Forever Nigella challenge is being hosted by Dom at Belleau Kitchen, the theme being Salad Days! Gone are the days of salads being some limp lettuce, tomato & cucumber with a radish or two thrown in if you were feeling adventurous. They are no longer a greying garnish, but a meal in themselves packed full of good stuff!

My entry is an interpretation of Nigella's recipe for Red-leaf, fig & serrano ham salad from the Nigella Express book. You might look at it & think there's no figs or serrano ham in it, crazy lady it's nothing like it! But I promise you it was reading this recipe that led me to putting these ingredients together.

For my WIGIG Salad, you'll need..

A selection of salad leaves, mozzarella cheese, proscutio cotto ham, some lightly steamed British asparagus & a drizzle of olive oil & balsamic vinegar. We have just entered the fabulous British asparagus season which sadly only lasts for three months, so I try & enjoy as much of it as I can, because when it's gone it's gone - hench it's name, WIGIG! There's a greab web site dedicated to the tasty veg, take a look for lots of useless asparagus facts & recipes.

There really isn't any method to this, just chuck it all together (in an artistic fashion of course!) & enjoy. Till next time, Rebecca x
