Simple Green Salad

Normally in winter time I would eat heaps of baked, roasted or fried food to give me that warm, full feeling when I finished eating my dinner. I would have roasted potatoes, pumpkin and sweet potatoes every night.

Recently, I have started a low carb diet as I have been eating way too much of it lately.

So instead of heaps of pasta, rice, bread and even potatoes. I have been eating my fruit and veggies with whatever protein I’m having that night.

This green salad I’m sharing today, is really easy to make and I used some very simple ingredients and a few of them came from my own garden pots.

I have starting using herbs quite a lot recently, both fresh and dry. And especially in my salads. And in cooking in general.

I came up with this salad, just only a few days a go. I haven’t googled to see if there is another one like it out there.

This green salad is becoming one of my favourite side salads that I have made. And I hope you find the recipe easy to follow.
