Harvesting the lamb's lettuce and baby leaf oriental salad




Remember the lamb's lettuce we planted last autumn? 'Organic gardening- The winter vegetable garden'- http://40plusandalliswell.blogspot.co.uk/2015/08/organic-gardening-winter-vegetable.html
We are just about harvesting the last of it now. Lamb's lettuce can be served in a salad, in smoothies or if you wish you can steam it and use it as a vegetable. It is bursting with vitamins A and C and has almost as much iron as spinach! We also grew some baby leaf oriental salad can be used in salad or stir fries. 

Why not try this walnut and apple salad for a light lunch with some crusty bread? 

Walnut and apple salad

You will need
Serves 1

1 pink lady apple, cored and sliced
1 tbsp lemon juice
50g chopped walnuts
couple of handfuls lamb's lettuce and/or baby leaf oriental salad

For the dressing
1 tsp sesame oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
pinch stevia

Arrange the lamb's lettuce and baby leaf oriental salad in a bowl. Sprinkle the lemon juice over the apple and arrange on top of the leaves. Add the walnuts.
Mix the ingredients for the dressing and drizzle over the salad.
Vegetarians can add some feta cheese.



Enjoy,
