Hot weather - time for salads!
I realise that this blog has had an unproportionate number of baked goods and unhealthy dishes lately. So, I'll start making up for it by telling you about the excellent chicken salad we had for dinner last night. Ah - so simple and fast, and so yummy! We used a ready-roasted chicken, or half of it to be precise, fed the skin to the cats, and combined the meat with halved cherry tomatoes, red onions sliced into thin half-moons, tossed it with lots of rocket salad, and finished with lots of parmesan cheese. Dressed it with a herb vinaigrette - white balsamic vinegar, olive oil, little bit of mustard, salt, pepper, sage and tarragon. Perfect for when it's too warm to consider anything else, and you want dinner on the table straight away.
