Hope your weekend is peachy, guys! We could not have better weather. The UK has really pulled it out of a bag this bank holiday, as the entire long weekend is beautifully sunny and warm. This is a miracle, good weather hardly ever coincides with bank holidays! We’ve spent many of them trudging around, in St Ives for example, in the rain. It saddens us that we are not able to enjoy much of this sunshine as we are spending the entire weekend on ladders, with protective masks and goggles on, patching up the ceiling cracks, sanding, priming and painting. I won’t bore you with details…but you get the gist.
Still, all this warmth is inspiring me to go back to eating more salads and this simple green number is what I dreamt up while sanding 😛 . It is inspired by our beautiful garden that we are lucky to have inherited from the house’s previous owners. While it doesn’t appear that they were fans of DIY, they certainly knew a thing or two about gardening. We have inherited a beautiful herb garden – how lucky, right – which we promised ourselves to look after well, a pear and an apple tree, some gooseberry bushes, tomatoes and strawberries.
Now that the spring is finally settling in and everything is in bloom we are feeling very grateful for this beautiful green oasis in the middle of town. Tina is also loving it. She bounces around like a mini cheetah. We are so happy to see her this happy!!
So mint is one of the herbs that we currently have in abundance and I’ve decided to use some in this spring-inspired green salad. New potatoes, peas, asparagus and mint are such a classic combo that I could not help myself. This salad is delicious, very seasonally appropriate and easy to make, so if you haven’t yet made a salad for your impending family gathering or a BBQ, I implore you to make this one, pronto!!
PS: If you make my green spring salad, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram as @lazycatkitchen and use the #lazycatkitchen hashtag. I love seeing your takes on my recipes!
