Green garden salad

Green garden salad is a simple and easy salad to prepare. If you don't have all of the ingredients to hand just substitute with another green salad vegetable. Really this salad is designed to be made up of the salad ingredients you already have. Follow the recipe certainly but also get a little adventurous by adding in your favourite veggies. 

To serve add a piece of fish or chicken or slices of cold meats, maybe ham or beef or whatever takes your fancy.


  • 2 TBS white wine or sherry vinegar
  • Large pinch of English mustard powder
  • 6 TBS extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed (optional)
  • 3 avocados, halved, stoned and thickly sliced
  • 1 small cos lettuce, roughly chopped
  • 2 lettuce hearts, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 2 small courgettes, pared into long, thin ribbons using a potato peeler
  • 100g bag washed watercress, spinach or rocket, torn into bite-size pieces
  • 1 box mustard cress, snipped
