After a long weekend of bread and eating way too many desserts, when Monday arrives,its hard to get out of bed in that massive sugar coma.Which is why you should make this salad…..
and eat your weight in it.
Its made of swiss chard and my very favorite salad dressing which is a perfect balance of sweet and tangy! Then you add a generous amount of goat cheese which will take your salad to new heights with its salty perfection.
Grab a big bowl and mix together your dressing ingredintes:
SIMPLE BUT GOOD DRESSING:
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tbsp honey ( or maple syrup or agave or other sweetner)
salt and pepper to taste
1.Mix well to combine.Toss into swiss chard leaves and mix well to coat.Put into the fridge overnight or for atleast to two hours to allow the flavours to mingle.
2.After two hours or overnight, get your greens out and peel and chop the veggies and toss into the bowl with the olives and beans.(i soaked my beans overnight and then cooked ’em..you can use canned…you need 0ne cup of beans).
Now toss the salad well and season well again…ps: you wont need salt due to the saltiness of the goats cheese..you can try another salty cheese like feta or add creamy hunks of ricotta and amp up the salt!
Now add a BIG squeeze of lime and drizzle with a little more honey if your chard is super bitter.I have made the same salad with kale and it tastes just as good….try baby spinach or lettuce for a twist!
Plate up and enjoy!
