I love cheese at christmas... and this salad is the perfect accompaniment! What's even better, its a great way of using up some left over bits and bobs from Christmas day! None of the ingredients are essential and you can either leave ingredients below out, and also add others you fancy in!
What you need:
-- lettuce, my fave is floppy lettuce like butterhead, but any will do!
-- celery, chopped
-- dates, chopped,
-- figs, chopped
-- nuts such as walnuts or pecans, lightly toasted (I just fry mine in a little oil til a little charcoaled)
-- chives or red onion or spring onions, chopped
Just add all the ingredients to a bowl and toss!
For the dressing:
1 part vinegar
4 parts olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar or honey or syrup
1 teaspoon of mustard
Just add all the ingredients into a jug and stir
Serve with your favourite cheese, and enjoy! x
