How about a pumpkin, pinenut & spinach salad? Cut up the pumpkin into cubes and roast it til golden.
Add some balsamic vinegar and a tiny touch of oyster sauce and It's super easy & delicious.
Another really yummy one which always proves popular is an Asian noodle salad- u can buy the packs of noodles and the dressing pre made- u just need red cabbage and some
Oh an u can't go past a coleslaw for Chrissy.

- Whole baby beets, halved
- 1 lemon rind
- 1 large handful fresh parmesan, coarsely grated
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup raspberry vinegar
Add dry ingredients in bowl.
Mix oil & raspberry vinegar together and add to salad slowly, add enough so salad is just dressed, not too wet.
This is delicious and perfect for summer.

Broccoli & Bacon Salad
- 3 heads of broccoli
- red onion (to taste)
- 3-5 rashes of bacon
- can also add pine nuts or sunflower kernels (or other type)
- 3-4 tbs mayonnaise (whole egg best)
- 1 tbs vinegar
- 1 tsp caster sugar
Fry off bacon while steaming broccoli. Mix mayo/vinegar/sugar together and then combine all ingredients and sprinkle with nuts if desired. Serve warm or cold.
It's delicious and everyone loves it! I've even had people that don't normally eat broccoli go back for seconds

I call this Mexican salad , it's not very Mexican but we had it in LA at a Mexican restaurant and I copied it-
chop everything into small cubes
2 granny smith apples
bunch broccoli , flowerettes only
bunch cauliflower, flowerettes
1 big carrot
1 stick celery
Small red onion
Handful fresh coriander chopped
1/2 cup freshly grated extra tasty cheese
Put all in a bowl and add splash of olive oil, squeeze of lemon and loads of white balsamic vinegar, it has the best flavor and is nice and crunchy with the raw veggies and white balsamic is sweet but still has a tang!
