Salad Days Lunch Delivery

What Salad Days office-delivered lunches make you feel nourished and ready to take on the afternoon. Providing tasty balanced food to London work places 7 days a week, from team meetings to office events, they have you covered. Where Order from Salad Days Website Experience At the start of the working week I have the best intentions to prepare fancy, healthy lunches to take to work, but it hardly ever materialises. Instead, I pop out to the same places, all within a 100 metre radius from the office. When I saw the Salad Days menu online, I scoured the photographs with sheer excitement.

Ingredients – serves 4 as a main or 6 as a side 200g Puy Lentils 2 tbsp fresh dill, chopped 3 tbsp fresh chives, chopped 1 small red onion Glug of extra virgin olive oil 5 vine ripened tomatoes Drizzle of balsamic glaze Cornish Sea Salt 1 ball of good quality Buffalo Mozzarella A few sprigs of rosemary Glug …

Quinoa and Feta Salad

There is NOTHING better than a good salad on a hot summers day – and today was no exception. After visiting the M&G Garden at Chelsea Flower Show this afternoon in the swealtering heat and stupidly getting sucked into the temptations of Oxford Street, I headed to the cool and quiet Waitrose foodhall in John Lewis to purchase a few bits and bobs to make a very delicious and healthy Quinoa Salad. The recipe serves four but my boyfriend and I were particularly hungry this evening so there was nowt left. Quinoa and Feta Salad, originally uploaded by Food For Think. Ingredients 1 tsp corriander powder 1/2 tsp turmeric Good glug of olive oil 300g Quinoa 600ml boiling water 2 radishes, thinly sliced A few handfuls of watercress and rocket 3 spring onions, chopped Hand full of tenderstem brocolli Hand full of green beans Roughly chopped corriander 50g feta cheese (I used Unearthed) 18 cherry tomatoes, 12 roasted and 6 halved 10 sun dried tomatoes Flaked almonds (to your own taste) Salt and pepper Method …
