Apologies for the slightly wanky shot above…I was making a joke to some friends about how this was my ‘work Christmas party’ this year…sitting on my back porch with a lovely frosty glass of rose and a bowl of this salad I am ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED with, with my feet up and surveying the garden in the midday sunshine. Doesn’t get more festive than that!
This salad had its genesis in a visit to a cafe in Northcote, the name of which escapes me i’m afraid. I think because I was too preoccupied with literally forensically pulling apart my lunch mate’s meal, filing away all the different components so I could reproduce my version at home. I was having serious food envy, so I wasn’t going to let this salad pass me by – I was determined to recreate it for myself. Here is my version of that meal, which is guaranteed to please your tastebuds, as well as being chock full of healthful goodness and hipster credibility.
