Today I made myself the most simple basic salad for late lunch. Um, very late lunch to be honest. At least I think eating at 3.50pm is quite late to call it lunch. But I don't really care about time when I eat. I just eat when I'm hungry. I'm currently home alone, so simple fast dishes are on my menu again. As I've probably mentioned many times before, I'm too lazy to cook just for myself. Luckily it's still summer, even thought it doesn't look like that for most of the time it London, and many vegetables are in season. It's therefore easy to make a quick salad full of nutritions and vitamins.
Also our cherry tomatoes are finally ripe and red. They, however have very little chance to make it into a salad as they are most often eaten immediately after being picked. They are so sweet and juicy that I just can't resist. Although P. prefers his tomatoes less ripe with a hint of sourness and chilled from the fridge. So I always keep some tomatoes in the fridge for a quick snack.
Today's salad doesn't even need any recipe. It's seriously no-fuss salad you can throw together in a couple of minutes. Simply combine your favourite greens with one chopped tomato in a bowl, toss together with some cubed feta and your favourite dressing. Enjoy as it is, or serve with grilled meat.
