Recipe – Chopped Salad

Chopped Salad
Of course we all love to cook – but occasionally, there just isn’t time. That’s when I whip up a big bowl of this delicious chopped salad which keeps well for days in the fridge. Found all over the Middle East, it makes an interesting alternative to a leafy green salad (which doesn’t keep well once dressed). Use this recipe as a guide, add some black olives and Feta for a classic Greek salad, or toss in some anchovies, red capsicum, dill, oregano or any other herb you fancy. It’s also great with grilled meats or just about anything. I pour a glass of delicious Sutton Grange viognier alongside and am very content!

Serves 2 as a main course or 6 as a side dish

Ingredients
  • 1 Lebanese cucumber
  • 3 spring onions
  • 4 small red radishes, quartered
  • 200g grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 tablespoon finely sliced mint leaves
  • 1 tablespoon parsley leaves, torn
  • ½ lemon
  • Extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • Salt flakes and freshly ground black pepper,
    to taste 
Method
  1. Quarter the cucumber lengthways then cut into thick slices.
  2. Thinly slice the spring onions and separate into rings.
  3. Combine cucumber and onion with radish, tomato, mint and parsley.
  4. Add a squeeze of lemon juice, drizzle of oil, salt and pepper and toss well.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.

I am absolutely loving these boxes! There are Ingredients I have never worked with before so having the confidence to try something new is so much fun! The recipes are just amazing and the notes on what can be prep’d beforehand are a great help too. Thank you so much.
