It's May. I dislike May because that's when I have my yearly medication for arthritis that knocks me out. I don't do an awful lot of cooking in May, but I have saved a couple of bits from the previous month. Also on top of that June/July will most likely be moving house month (our first house!) which will involve lots of upheaval and decorating, not to mention I'll be using a gas cooker for the first time.
So really that's a long way of saying that I won't be posting much this summer!
Here's something in the meantime - my favourite side salad, which I like to serve in huge amounts next to a small main portion. Here it is next to a red pepper and cheese omelette. The amounts listed make 2 times this amount and a bit extra.
Mega side salad!
Serves 2 as a main or 4 as a side
Half a cucumber
3 large tomatoes
Black olives - I usually make sure I at least have 8 olives per person
2 tbsp chopped fresh herbs of your preference - I have used chives and dill so far, and thyme and lemon thyme will also work well
1 tbsp olive oil, preferably flavoured like basil
2 tsp Balsamic vinegar
* Chop it all up to desired size and mix it all up in a bowl!
