Fresh and healthy seasonal vegetables topped with goat cheese. The perfect way to get back into salads this Spring.  Topped with the Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing, it’s the perfect salad to serve alongside any grilled lean protein.

Ingredients

  • 2 handfuls mixed lettuce leaves
  • 1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 4 baby carrots, blanched and halved
  • 1 handful sugar snap or snow peas, blanched or raw
  • bunch of asparagus, woody ends removed and blanched
  • 50g goat cheese

Lemon Vinaigrette Dressing

  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons honey (optional)
  • 1 lemon, zest grated and juiced
