DELICIOUS

Description

I call this my "SURPRISE SALAD" because it is usually a mix of all the stuff left in my fridge. Every time I make it, the salad comes out differently. But it’s always delicious and such a welcome addition when it makes its’ appearance at the dinner table.

And the home made dressing is brilliant. In fact my daughter has voted it the best salad dressing on the planet. But she’s a little bias.

So surprise your family with this healthy, nutritious and delicious bowl of yummy xxx Chef MM
