My Heatwave Friendly Supper

Too hot to cook! Too hot to even be that hungry. So I whipped up a quick summery salad for myself after goblin had hummus sandwiches and banana for dinner (which I really didn’t fancy, call me crazy).

I’m not usually a big fan of salads as they never tend to satisfy me but this bad boy did the trick.

I layered lettuce and rocket in my luscious gigantic bowl plate – drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Then added chopped spring onions and ripe avocado.

Then I chopped up some peri peri chicken slices I got from Aldi’s deli section today, added a dollop of red pepper hummus and drizzled the lot with a little sweet chilli sauce and boom!! Absolutely delicious accompanied by a kiwi and lime cider (also from Aldi, god I love Aldi). Super refreshing, filling but nice and light.

You can add bits and pieces as you wish. Have tuna instead of chicken. Add Mayo. Whatever takes your fancy.

Here’s a list of what I put in it:

  • Rocket (handful)
  • Lettuce (handful)
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Olive oil
  • Sweet chilli sauce
  • 4 pieces of Peri peri chicken (cooked and ready to eat) sliced
  • 1 avocado
  • Dollop of red pepper hummus
  • Black pepper
