If there is one kind of food I am totally in love with , then it has to be salad and loads of it 🙂

Adding lots of different things adds immense flavours, and each bite bursts with a different taste in your mouth.. a bit of spice from the jalapeno, a bit of crunch from the sunflower seeds and then that little bit of sweet from the raisins, its is truly fabulous.

I can never tire of eating it.


Fresh head of lettuce- torn into bits- about 1 cup

Tomatoes, small- 3

Jalapeno chillies( in vinegar)- 4-5 slices

Sunflower seeds- 2 tsp

Raisins- 2 tsp

Ingredients for Dressing

Olive oil- 2 tsp

Balsamic vinegar- 1 tsp

Salt- 1 pinch

Pepper- 1 pinch



Get the freshest lettuce you can find and chop or tear it into bits.
