This is a really delicious, simple summer salad that was sent to me by Sari Swig of Cook Alkaline just before Christmas.
I tried it out on the family a couple of days ago and it went down a treat!
Sari emailed me:
I filled little gem lettuce leaves with some chopped radishes, cucumbers, carrots, tomatoes and a touch of avocado. Dressed with a little olive oil and lemon juice.
It was a big hit and there was not a leaf left. I was happy to get a picture.
I hope you like this.
