Green Salad with Raspberries, Walnuts and Blue Cheese

I’ve been longing for a green salad. Having made (and eaten) too many ANZAC Biscuits, we needed something to counterbalance that wonderful sweetness of the biscuits. This salad did it. It combines greens from the garden (use what you have at hand) with some soft raspberries, crunchy crushed walnuts and tangy blue cheese.

This is another wonderful salad from Bittman. I am over half way through the journey of making his 101 salads (at least, the vegetarian ones). Each one has been wonderful and this one is too.

Why not try other Bittman Salads? Try Green Salad with Chickpeas, Preserved Lemon and Feta, Cucumber Salad with Capers and Ricotta and Watermelon and Peach Salad with Basil.

All of the Bittman Salads that we have tried are here. Or explore all of our Salads. Maybe your would like to explore our easy Early Autumn recipes.

Thai Lettuce Wraps

A light Thai dish for summer nights.

This is a a raw, Thai inspired lettuce wrapped dish, which is amazingly delicious, easy to make, and just as good as leftovers. The filling, made mainly of walnuts and mushrooms, is rather brown. Don’t let this put you off. It is wonderfully tasty.

These Thai Wraps are so simple to make,  and well worth experimenting with. We love the balance of flavours, adding lime juice as we ate.
