Easy peasy vegetarian salad
- 3 new potatoes
- 1 medium egg
- 1 cup of lettuce
- 3 Cherry tomatoes
- 4 thick cucumber slices
- ¼ red pepper
- ½ avocado
- 100g tenderstem broccoli
- 1 spring onion
- 1 tbsp light mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp of light Caesar dressing
Fill a pan with cold water and add 3 new potatoes and an egg, put on the stove with the lid on and bring to boiling point. Once boiling, turn heat down to simmer and set timer for 9 minutes.
While this simmers you can prep the actual salad. Roughly chop some lettuce (I use iceberg and spinach), a few tomatoes, some cucumber, peppers, avocado and anything else you fancy chucking in, the world is your oyster 🥗.
When the timer goes off, scoop the egg out and plunge into a bowl of cold water. Leave the potatoes to simmer for another 5 minutes.
After the 5 minutes are up, add your tenderstem broccoli and set timer for 3 minutes. Tap the egg shell all round with the back of a teaspoon and peal. Cut in half and place on plate.
Roughly chop some spring onions and place in a bowl. Add the light mayonnaise. Once the potatoes are cooked (should feel easy to put a knife through), roughly chop these up and mix with the onion/mayo mix. Add this and the broccoli to your plate, whatever dressing you desire and enjoy.
Simple salad that tastes delicious and has plenty of benefits for you. I prep this for lunch, and leave the egg smashing and potato salad mix for the next day.
