Warm Winter Salad

I don't know about you but I am not keen on cold salads in winter! Solution add something warm to the usual cold leaves...the hot and cold effect is strangely comforting. Normally what I do is use my left over vegetables from the night before. This one was roasted red, yellow and green pepper, courgette & garlic with a drizzle of olive oil. Coupled with spinach, rocket, watercress, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, avocado, celery and a little sweetness from an apple. You can simply add chicken, turkey, prawns or boiled eggs for protein to keep you fuller for longer.
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 red pepper
1 yellow pepper
1 green pepper
1 courgette
2 garlic cloves
1 pack of quinoa (pre cooked )
Green salad:
Watercress, spinach and rocket salad
4-5 cherry tomatoes
1 celery stalk, chopped
1/2 avocado, cubed
1/2 apple, peeled, cored and cubed
1/4 lemon and olive oil dressing
1 tbsp of mixed seeds (4 seed mix from Tescos)
1. Prepare the roasted vegetables the day before but chopping and coring them, drizzle oil and add to a roasting dish.
2. Prepare the salad in a dish with the quinoa
3. Heat the roasted vegetables if made the day before
4. Add to the green salad
5. Drizzle lemon juice and olive oil
