it's salad season!

I realise everything has been overtaken by the heat; beauty products, food choices, outfit options, the list is endless. But that's the problem, the weather does affect everything.

So I have renamed this summer, salad season. It is literally all I am eating recently. But we aren't just talking a bit of lettuce and cucumber. I am going a bit experimental with the lettuce leaf. And thanks to the Zest magazine I picked up in the airport, I have plenty of options. 

There was a great little article, talking about the best combinations to ensure your salad is healthy, tasting and gives you the energy you need. While I am notorious for eating and enjoying my food, they have some great options which even I am happy with. 

And they included a great little pick'n'mix table to help you create the salad of your dreams. 

So I used this as inspiration and got crafty with the salad in my fridge. This is what I have come up with over the past few days. Note a distinct love of green beans recently! 

Baby Spinach, Green Beans, Mozzarella, Tomato and Lemon Pesto dressing. 

Mixed Leaves, Green Beans, Prawns, Yellow Peppers and Sweet Chili Vinaigrette

Iceberg Lettuce, Sweet Chili Sesame Prawns, Red Pepper, Cucumber and Lemon Dressing.

Baby Spinach, Courgette, Green Beans, Sun-dried Tomato, Walnuts and Goats cheese. No dressing.
