This is a salad bursting with flavour. The sweetness of the peaches married with the sharpness of the feta cheese sounds counter-intuitive but it works wonderfully well. You can of course save time and buy a ready prepared herb salad but I prefer to make it fresh myself.
- Two handfuls of young leaf spinach
- A handful of watercress
- Three or four lettuce leaves, sliced
- A handful of coriander, roughly chopped
- One peach, sliced into 8 segments
- 50 g of feta cheese
- 3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbs cider vinegar
- pinch of salt
- 1 tsp honey
Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a frying pan and add the peach segments, flesh side down. Fry gently until golden brown on each side. Set aside.
Place all the spinach, watercress, lettuce and coriander in a bowl. In a separate small bowl, mix the dressing ingredients together then toss with the salad leaves. Transfer the dressed salad leaves on to a plate, place the peaches on top and then crumble the feta on top. And that’s it really, very simple and easy to make. Enjoy!
