I know it’s September (whaaaatt?!) and it’s starting to get colder but I thought I’d post my final summer salad recipe because WHY NOT? (plus it’s actually kind of warm today – shock horror in England). This salad combines all the freshest ingredients with a light dressing as the fruits and vegetables really are the stars of the show.
Also, I’m starting school again tomorrow! Oh my god, I can’t believe how quickly summer went! I really want summer again please, thanks! But I’m quite excited to start – is that weird?
Aaaand I’m still in love with this camera. All the pictures are lookin’ fiiine (did I just say that. wow.)
Peach, Corn and Gem Lettuce Salad vegan, dairy free, gluten free
Serves 2 as a side
A perfect summer salad using fresh produce – try to get organic if possible and shop at your local market. The peaches and corn provide sweetness, whilst the lettuce brings a mellowness to the dish. Don’t skip the freshly ground pepper as it gives a nice kick to the salad!
1 peach (or 2 flat peaches)
1 corn on the cob
1 round of gem lettuce (or butter lettuce, or arugula for a peppery flavour)
Extra virgin olive oil
Pinch of sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
optional: goats cheese
Boil the corn for about 5 minutes until tender and sweet.
Once cooked, run under cold water so cool enough to handle and cut the corn off the cob with a knife.
Cut the peach into bite size pieces.
Pull the leaves off the gem lettuce. Alternatively, you can cut into strips.
Add olive oil and salt to the lettuce and lay on a plate.
Top with peaches and corn and freshly ground black pepper.
Serve immediately so the leaves don’t wilt.
