The weather is starting to warm up (24 degrees Celsius yesterday!) and I can feel Spring starting to make itself known. I am the sort of person who very much eats according to the weather. I love nothing more than hot, slow cooked meals in the winter, and tend towards salad and BBQ meals in the warmer months. Cakes of course are for year-round eating 🙂

These are a couple of salads that are on regular rotation in the Seltzer household as the weather hots up…

 

Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Feta

Roasted sweet potato and feta salad
It’s so simple, but so delicious. I eat it with BBQ chicken for lunch, or a steak for dinner. Roasted sweet potato, rocket, roasted red capsicum, olives and feta is a winning combo in my books, and the hardest part of this recipe is actually peeling, chopping and roasting the sweet potato. Once that’s done you’ve got a fresh and colourful salad to tempt your tastebuds.

 

Ultimate Greek Salad

Lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, olive, feta, oregano…an absolute classic. This salad is a staple in our household, and I add tuna for protein. I have this for lunch at least a couple of times a week in the warmer months, and it takes a while for me to tire of it.

 

Pasta Salad

Spring Pasta Salad

How amazing does this look! Roasted chickpeas and a good pecorino cheese really make this salad. If you can find colourful pasta like this, it really does jazz up what could be a pretty boring-looking salad.

What are your favourite salads? I’d love to try some new recipes this Spring and Summer.

Stay Fit & Well,
