Pumpkin, Fig and Chickpea Salad

pumpkin recipes

This is a really filling salad. And its also a sweet salad which I loved. Im a fan of figs and they were a really nice combination of flavours with the spices and coriander. BUT once again I got complaints from the husband (no surprises here lol). I even questioned myself about posting this recipe, because he hated it so much.But I ate the left overs the next day and I still liked it the next day. I would love  somebody elses opinion on this one.

He didn’t like the honey in it. Um what honey? lol I think he meant the sweetness of the fig. I swear this man thinks he has an allergy to fruit!Continue Reading

Avocado and Pear Salad

avocado and pear salad

This is a really nice change from the normal salad Im used to. My usual salad consists of lettuce, tomato, cucumber and onion thrown in a container. Pop the lid on and shake like a maniac then just eat it out of the container. How boring, any wonder I’m sick of salads. So in my hunt to find interesting and healthy food I come up with this. When I make it for myself I of course only use a quarter of my ingredients and make it fresh everyday. But its easy just to pop everything in a container and cut off and use as much as you need for 1 serve.

Its good to set myself quantities as I tend to go overboard with feta and any other type of cheese. I can always make a healthy salad into an unhealthy salad. Im sure there are plenty of people who do thisContinue Reading

Chicken and Green Bean Salad Recipe

chicken bean recipes

This salad is so quick and easy to make and it tastes great. Its one of those recipes that you cook again, well i do anyway. It is definitely one of my faves!

It serves 4 generally but if you have 2 big eaters in the house and this is your main meal then i would say it serves 2 as a big main meal salad. My husband even likes this salad his words were ‘this actually tastes nice considering how green it is’  he is not a salad man. But too bad!
