Salad Lunch with Pie!

Uncategorized | July 4, 2012 | By

I made a trip out to our local Farm Shop, Kilnford Barns to stock up on some of their Galloway Beef, Blackface Lamb and Outdoor Reared Pork all locally produced.  While I was there I spied this pie in the Deli, it’s ham, chicken and stuffing, as I’d been out all day I thought it would be ideal for our supper with some simple salads.  This piece was around £6.00 however,  it served three people.  It’s a heavy little pie, because it is stuffed with lots of meat and is quite filling  so overall it was good value and really very delicious.

I got a new food processor recently and it is brilliant for making your own coleslaw.  This one has sliced white cabbage, sliced fennel and  grated carrots dressed with a well seasoned mix of mayonnaise and greek yogurt and topped with some roughly chopped pistaschio nuts.

The hot potato salad with spring onions and mint was featured on Lavender and Lovage and was easy to make and delicious.

My basil plant has finally produced leaves big enough to pick. They are still pretty small but another week and I will be wondering what to do with them all!  Simply sliced tomatoes, seasoned with salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar, dressed with olive oil and topped with basil leaves.

The salad leaves came from my little salad trough, which has done better than ever before due to the huge quantity of water coming from the sky and the muggy temperatures.

Here are the salad leaves in situ
And here are the salads laid out on the table to accompany the pie.  It may not be much of a summer, but that doesn’t mean we can’t eat and enjoy summer food.
