Hello everyone! Happy mid of week (I feel you, Friday.) Who is here for some delightful and exciting salad?
As I mentioned in my previous post, I am done with rose-infused ideas, and I am moving on lavender. How exciting, isn’t it? But not quite yet. This week I am sharing some salads and appetizers instead. As any other summer, I make many salads and bruschettas, but I have only shared a few of them yet. Please blame the lilac and rose season.
Summer Salad ideas
While I love sophisticated and somewhat bizarre salad combinations, this year we’ve been enjoying some simple flavours. Actually, that makes sense for my blogging goals. Why? I am not going to give up on blogging in the foreseeable future. So, if I use up all my potential for creating something unique now, what am I going to do in 10 years or so haha? (But I hope my imagination never leaves me.)
Please check these ideas I’ve shared this season:
Oh man – definitely not enough of salad ideas for me. I’ll need to catch up!
Peach Strawberry Salad
This Peach Strawberry Salad is simple in terms of flavours and textures, but it’s super tasty. Succulent peaches and refreshing strawberries make an excellent combination. I also added nasturtium leaves (which are totally edible as well as other parts of this flower). If you’ve never tried them, you definitely should. They have a nice peppery and robust kick, which reminds me a cross between arugula and water cress.
While chicken is optional, if you have any leftovers, please do add it. I didn’t cook chicken specifically for the recipe, but it’s a good addition. Mint adds freshness. Besides, some other possible additions include cheese (think of goat cheese or feta), nuts, or deli meets like prosciutto. Daisy would have approved prosciutto, but she was also fine with the chicken.
This salad is juicy enough, and it doesn’t need any dressing in my opinion. However, feel free to add a little drizzle of olive oil and citrus juice. That won’t hurt!
I hope you like this Peach Strawberry Salad, and you will give it a try soon. If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.
Peach Strawberry SaladCourse: Salads, Main, Appetizers
This Peach Strawberry Salad is juicy, fresh, light yet satisfying. It’s a perfect appetizer (4-6 servings) or the entire main dish (2 servings)
2 peaches, pitted and sliced
1 cup strawberries, hulled and cut into few pieces
2 cups of green leaves such as spinach, kale, arugula, or mix
1/4 cup mint, chopped
1 cup cooked chicken, shredded (optional)
1/2 cup nasturtium leaves, chopped (optional) – see notes
lemon or lime juice and olive oil (optional)
optional additions: nuts, cheese
- Simply combine the ingredients in a bowl and serve. This salad is juicy enough, but if you want to use some dressing anyway, imply drizzle with a little of olive oil and citrus juice. Enjoy!
- Nasturtium leaves (and steams) taste peppery and robust, like watercress or arugula. If you are adding them, I’d recommend combining them with neutral greens like spinach or kale because mixing them with arugula could result in too strong peppery flavour.
