Jamie Oliver style cucmber/spinach salad
This is adapted from a salad in Jamie's new book "30 Minute Meals".
He added toasted pine nuts and lemon juice (I had none of these in the cupboard) and I added some feta, he did not. I also used mixed bag of lettuce (that includes baby spinach), he also added some mint at the end, I don't like mint. I added some bean shoots.
1/2 packet your favourtie mixed leaves, or use just baby spinach leaves
good handful sun-dried tomatoes
handful bean shoots (or alfafa would do good too)
handful danish feta crumbled
1/2 cucumber chopped
1-2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
handful grated parmesan
Simple as. Place all the ingredients in a bowl, in a small bowl mix the oil, vinegar and salt and pepper, drizzle over just before stirring along with the grated parmesan on the top.
