Iâ€™m a huge supporter for recipes that are simple. Ones that you can prepare rather quickly, without much effort and most importantly, are flavoursome. A combination that I had yet to try was fruit in a salad. Okay so tomatoes are technically a fruit, but in this instance, Iâ€™m referring to the king of berries- strawberries. Yes, Iâ€™m adding them into a salad. In collaboration with M&S, I’m recreating their Strawberry and Manchego Salad. It can go one of two ways; be a flavour revelation or be awful. A true Marmite moment.
For the ingredients, I popped along to my local M&S Simply Food that I honestly donâ€™t think Iâ€™m ever away from. Ross and I pop in for a few things then leave with a trolley load constantly. Recent favourites of mine are the â€˜Best Ever Burgerâ€™ that they started doing. These are by far the best burgers you could buy in a supermarket and contain bone marrow to make them extra decadent. Delicious chargrilled or even better barbecued with crispy onions and gooey Manchego cheese in a brioche bun. Drool.
Back to the Strawberry and Manchego Salad though, you know, healthy balance and all that jazz.
I picked up the 8 ingredients required to recreate this recipe, including the all important Strawberries and headed home very proud of myself that I managed to restrain myself from buying extra goodies. This time.
