I am in the mood for salads!

It all started back in March when we had glorious weather and we thought Summer had arrived early. Then it rained and rained and rained.

We moved towards the end of May and had another beautiful, hot, sunny week and we thought Summer had definitely arrived this time and then, yes, you guessed it more rain.

Well today is such a day, dull, grey and depressingly dreich.

I still want salad!

Salad on a day dreich day in Scotland has to be hearty and comforting.

I teamed the feta cheese with, potatoes, spring onions, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes and eggs.

Then I dressed my salad with a mustard vinaigrette.

It was just what I wanted. A hearty, filling salad that tastes great.

A hearty salad for wet miserable days. The ultimate in comfort food! Potatoes, spring onions, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, feta and hard boiled eggs in a mustard vinaigrette.
  • 750g baby new potatoes
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 large flat cap mushrooms, sliced
  • 10 sundried tomatoes, sliced
  • 3 spring onions, finely sliced
  • 100g feta cheese
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp wholegrain mustard
1. Boil the potatoes in salted water for 15-20 minutes until tender.2. While the potatoes are cooking, boil the eggs for 7 minutes, then refresh in cold water before peeling the shells off.3. Saute the mushrooms for a few minutes in a splash of olive oil until tender. I like to season my mushrooms with black pepper as they cook. They really absorb the flavour.4. Drain the potatoes once they are cooked and put into a large bowl with the spring onions, sundried tomatoes and mushrooms.5. Whisk up the dressing ingredients (olive oil, vinegar, mustard and black pepper) and coat the salad in it.6. Crumble the feta cheese over the salad, then top with halves.7. Enjoy

  1. YUM. Like your salad enough to EAT IT!
    Today's salad here is cucumbers, finely chopped carrots, onions, tomatoes, chives and corn with maybe a touch of oregano and some garlic. Tasty but a bit on the spicy side, as the garlic has more of a kick than I thought, as does the onion. I'll try to remember to take a picture.

  2. That sounds good too Tanita. I think I might be back in soup mode again if this cold snap continues :(

  3. I love the idea of combining balsamic vinegar and mustard for a mustard vinaigrette! This salad does sound very hearty. I'll be sure to vote for you tomorrow!

    1. Thanks Madge, I appreciate that and good luck with the prize draw.

      You should try the dressing, it is my favourite :)

  4. This is a great salad!!!Hope summer will come soon so I can better enjoy it!

    1. I know, we get little glimpses of Summer and then it is gone again :(

  5. Looks delicious Jac and could do with a bowlful right now. Will see if I can figure out how to vote for your salad now.

    1. Thanks Choclette, although it won't be up until tomorrow :)

  6. This sounds lovely Jac, I love the combo of feta and potatoes. I'm not really a fan of salad leaves so this month's NCR is just perfect for me - I might even get round to entering it!

  7. Looks good. I've never had the chance to enjoy Apetina Cheese.

    1. It is a lovely, mild, milky and crumbly salad cheese.

  8. I love my salads like this fabulous one: real in great flavours & a tasty dressing!

    What more do you want? I also tasted this cheese & loved it too! :)

    1. It is a stonker of a salad and the cheese is rather tasty. Yum!
