  5. Using a jar or glass place a tablespoon of mustard, a good dash of balsamic vinegar, 2 parts of olive oil, a tablespoon of honey. Shake or whisk together and season with salt and pepper.

  1. My favourite salad at the moment is spinach, roasted pumkin, fetta and walnuts. I make my own dressing using dijon mustard, love it, can’t get enough. I have a feeling that beetroot salad will become my next favourite, with beets growing in my vegetable patch I will have to do something with them. lol

  2. I’m going to steal the Roast Pumkin, spinach and feta salad – delish!

  3. I love the pumpkin salad too but instead of using feta, I use goats cheese rolled in ash. It’s quite delicious and yes, a crowd pleaser here too!!! For a quick, no fuss dressing, I use Paul Newman’s Own Light Balsamic dressing, easy peasy!!
