As I mentioned recently, I have a hard time getting past the salad combination of pumpkin and haloumi.
Let’s just take a minute and really soak in the thought of that combination. Oh boy. Oh help. Oh yum.
Ok, so I thought I’d better broaden my horizons, and I really love big chunky salads in summer. I had eaten a whole lot of junk one day and was so exhausted I could barely get off the couch. I needed a huge salad, full of good stuff. So I made this.
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled, cubed and baked
1 block feta
1 bag mixed lettuce
2 green onions, sliced
1 punnet grape tomatoes
1 handful fresh coriander
For the dressing:
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
just less than 1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon wholegrain mustard
1 tablespoon maple syrup
salt and pepper
For the salad: Mix.
For the dressing: um… mix.

Where it says “Name”, you might like to add the name of your dish instead or as well.
Oh, and if you’ve got some kind of combination that will get me out of the pumpkin-haloumi (delicious) rut, please let me know!
