I couldn't think where to post this.

Can anyone  share some good recipes that they like.
Or some good books on the topic. 
Ideally nothing cooked unless it can be purchased already cooked, or can go into a microwave. 

<3 salads, always have. 

Do not follow me, I don't know where I am going.

    Chopped salad 
    Cous cous you can buy this and just add hot water and it swells and is ready
    then add chopped cucumber, tomatoes, spring onions, peppers, sweetcorn, radishes, any salad vegetables

    and add some feta, or avocado, or chicken or tuna

    i also like a feta salad
    cos lettuce chopped, with cucumber red onion, tomatoes, olives and feta.

    you could buy a cooked chicken and add any salad vegetables you like

    to dress salads you can add cider vinegar and a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil. 

    Rocket is delicious dressed with sundries tomatoes and Parmesan and a little oil I actually don't add oil to this but it's so tasty!!

    Hello @whistles Understand you can use a microwave.  Look at Tinned Pulse like in Italy they have Cannellini and Borlotti Beans.

    These can be added drained rinse under water using a sieve.  Then into microwave bowl for a few seconds.

    Then mix into any fresh herbs and lemon juice and olive oil.

    This is one I use all around the year

    ITALIAN BEAN SALAD

    Any tinned bean like Cannellini or Borlotti 
    Any vegetable like Aubergines, Peppers. Zuchinni use Anti Pasti jars drain use the oil dressing.
    Herbs Parsley or Basil
    Lemon Juice bottle or fresh

    1.  Add beans drained rinse under water using sieve.  Add to microwave bowl      warm through.

    2.  Drain Anti Pasta Jar mix into Beans

    3.  Mix up herbs add in Basil or Parsley.  Use others like Coriander or Mint.

    4.  Dressing oil from the jars plus olive oil and lemon juice

    5.  Serve this with Chicken cooked or deli meats.  

    6.  I added in Beetroot diced in Winter.  Already cooked.


    Please can I suggest get a folder make up.  Put it all recipes suggestions ideas and then you will not forget

    Take care.
