Summer Salad Recipe 6

Now it's summer time I've swapped the stodge for eating a lot of salad. But I'm not massively imaginative when it comes to salad and I think I'm being different if I so much as scatter a bit of sweetcorn or beetroot over the top of my usual lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes! When I was challenged to come up with a salad recipe with the theme of BBQ Bonanza using Apetina cheese , I slightly freaked out as (a) I'm not creative enough when it comes to salad and (b) ummm, there's no sun! BBQ's require sunshine! Well I'm pretty proud of the  Apetina recipe 
that I came up with and to be honest, we didn't cook the lamb that went with this on the BBQ, it was raining that day but it would be delicious as part of any summer BBQ menu. Here goes.......

Apetina, Pomegranate & Cous Cous Salad with A Yoghurt, Lemon and Mint Salad dressing
Ingredients For the Salad - throw all this together iin your salad bowl
Half a tub of Apetina Classic
Jewels from one Pomegranate
Half a bag of Rocket
100g Cous Cous - cook as per packet and stir in a 2 teaspoons of Harissa Paste

Ingredients for the Dressing - drizzle this all over the salad and toss together with salad servers
2 tablespoons of Natural Yoghurt
1 tablespoon of Olive Oil
A handful of chopped mint
Juice from half a Lemon
1 squished garlic clove
Seasoning to taste

We served this with Harissa Lamb - it was absolutely delicious, so light and tasty!

If you like the sound of this recipe then I'd love you to go to the Apetina Facebook page, take a look at the competition and if you still like the sound of my recipe then give it your vote! And if you fancy livening up your summer salads go to the Apetina website and turn your limp lettuce into a summer salad sensation!

Apetina   cheese is a semi hard cheese, with a delicious creamy and mild flavour. It's such a convenient and versatile product, with the small pots of cubed cheese ready to sprinkle over your meals. Give it a try, and perhaps invent your own recipes using it! I've definitely improved my creativity this week having taken this challenge!
