Herb Salad

DSC00492

My Father-In-Law is an excellent cook and one thing he does really well are salads. Instead of using lettuce or other salad leaves as the base he uses herbs exclusively. Most commonly the base is parsley, coriander or mint. It means that the salad is just bursting with fresh flavour. Last night we had one of these herb salads. The key ingredients are always the herbs, avocado and capers but to this you can add anything you like. We had celery, cucumber, tomatoes, radishes and walnuts which we added to the base of a huge bunch of chopped coriander and parsley. I then made up a mustard and agave syrup dressing with a tablespoon of dijon mustard, two tablespoons of agave syrup and a splash of water to make the dressing very runny. Served with warm pita bread, this was a really gorgeous fresh supper.
