Quinoa and haloumi spring salad

A great combination with the Lamb and feta meatball flatbreads. My colleagues at BUX munched their way through this healthy lunch, some of them even came back for thirds… We did skip the haloumi in this recipe. The reason why was because we just did not order it. So improvising is a great thing, skipping…

Couscous Salad

Globe artichoke salad with potatoes

My experience with artichokes is limited but I did take the challenge on today to make this recipe for lunch. Not all went well, I left too many tough outer leaves on and my cooking time could have been a bit longer. But, all was eaten and gone before I looked again, so the taste…

Salade Nicoise

A classic salad and very underrated if you ask me. My choice would be fresh french beans instead of frozen fine one’s.

French beans and mangetout with hazelnut and orange

This cold bean salad is lovely. The Buxers looked a bit funny at the orange peels in their salad but nobody complained, so I guess they love it as much as I do! I made lots, so extra’s for tomorrow. I did follow this Ottolenghi recipe from top to bottom for the best result. Ingredients…
