My salad recipes vary from ones that are quick to rustle up to salads with quite a long list of ingredients.
These recipes do not require that you follow them slavishly (not many recipes do) – look upon them only as blueprints and get creative with that salad bowl of yours.

There are so many wonderful things to pick and mix to make a salad and so many wonderful ways to make a salad dressing to drizzle on top.
A lot of the time though, I’m perfectly happy to simply drizzle over nothing else but a little bit of olive oil and a little bit of really decent balsamic vinegar, which can make the most humble vegetable into a superstar.
You only need to use a small amount of good balsamic vinegar though as the flavour is so concentrated, making a bottle of the good stuff last longer.
