Another salad...for dinner

15 degrees and sunny....apparently it is summer and my salad packed menu plan finally starting to make sense!! Last night I made yet another salad from the fabulous For the Love of Food.  This salad took a bit of time lentils, sautéing onions and garlic, roasting courgettes, cooking peas and beans...but, I was home alone, had the time and...well...I just love being in the kitchen anyway!

I the last minute to add the end of the bag of orecchiette that I had opened earlier in the week. The addition of the pasta made this salad more substantial, but I will definitely try as it was meant to some the future.  The dressing is a simple yoghurt, oil and lemon juice combination that...I think could have benefitted from some heat (next time)...otherwise...totally yummy!


  1. Yum! Delicious, and I love the housewifely economy of using up the pasta. Bravo!

  2. This looks fab! And hurrah for the weather matching your meal plan, most satisfying.


  3. Please do not feed the animals...thanks! it was yummy (and healthy...but then i ate a snickers and a can of coke...)

    A trifle rushed...thanks!!! i know...very economical of me :)

    Seren...i know! finally nice weather! :) and salads :)

  4. Your husband must be the luckiest person alive.... What lovely food....

    You know what they say!!
    The way to a mans heart is through his stomach!!!!!!

    I grow most of my fruit and vegetables, but don't have your flare to cook them....x

    I love following your blog and would be so thrilled if you would follow me.......x

  5. Now that looks like the type of salad I like. Can't beat some roasted veg to add a bit of extra flavour to a salad.

  6. really lovely... it's late at night but I want this now... send it to meeeeeee!

  7. Looks delicious! I love salad season and I think I'll attempt yours!
