And it was really so simple. As are all the best things in life. I bought some marvellous kiln smoked salmon from a local farm shop and served it with a salad that was light, but satisfying and sexy, as all the best salads are. Pea shoots, baby spinach, rocket and lambs lettuce formed the bed to which I added halved cherry tomatoes, sliced fennel and baby buffalo mozzarella balls. I drizzled my own salad dressing over, lightly – 3 tbsps olive oil, 1 tbsp white wine vinegar, 1 tsp og dijon mustard and a little salt and black pepper.
We had a little olive and sun dried tomato focaccia on the side and the flavours overall were immense. Just sitting here waiting for supper now – neck fillet of lamb in red wine with mint. Wood fire is roaring away and all well with the world – well this particular corner of the world. Happy Wednesday.
