recipe is : happy rainbow salad

I call this my Happy Rainbow salad as the colour combination always brings me to my 'happy place'.


roast chicken slices
red/purple cabbage, thinly julienned
turnip, cut into thin strips
cherry tomatoes, cut into halves
asparagus, cut into 4 cm lengths, blanched and drained

extra virgin olive oil
lemon juice

grated cheddar and grated parmesan cheese


put all the salad items together in a bowl. put the dressing items in a air-tight jar, close and shake vigorously to combine

pour the dressing onto the salad and toss to mix thoroughly

top up with the cheeses and serve


notice that i didn't jot down the amount of the ingredients. this is because i find salads to be a very personal dish. some of us like more of a certain ingredient than others. generally my rule of thumb is one handful of each salad ingredient for each person. as for the dressing, well, that's entirely up to you, some like it more sweet, some with a little more bite.... just taste the dressing and adjust accordingly before pouring over the salad
