Hi there, Happy New Year! It's business as usual here on my site, but please note that the pandemic is still causing disruptions with Royal Mail, so you order might take longer to arrive, and apologies if you are still waiting for your parcel... in some areas they are taking up to a month to arrive. Please also note that I am not currently sending orders outside of the UK again due to postal disruptions. I hope to do so again in a few weeks. Thank you and keep safe, Lucy x

Fig, mozzarella & basil salad.. so easy & so delicious!

This salad is so fresh and soOOOoo easy to do! Perfect in the summer as a main meal with new potatoes and parma ham, or as a starter when friends are around.

 Serves 2

What you need:

1 x packet of mozzarella, slice it

4 x fresh figs (available from most supermarkets and farm shops), sliced

handful of pinenuts, lightly toasted in a pan over a low heat

handful of fresh basil, torn into little bits

drizzle of extra virgin olive oil

drizzle of balsamic glaze


What you do: 

Arrange the mozzarella and fig slices on a dish, sprinkle over the pine nuts, basil bits and drizzle over a healthy glug of olive oil and balsamic glaze. Season to taste. 

Try with parma ham, or with rocket for a peppery kick and if you like it spicy then drizzle with some chilli oil!

Enjoy x
