Each week I trot along to the Mercredi morning market here in Morzine (allez l’alliteration!) to do my food shopping. There is a fabulous bio/organic stall at the back that sells these little spinachy type leaves called tetragonia. They also give you a little bunch of parsley and basil for free because they’re very nice.
So this salad is based on what I bought this week
Also, I’ve got too much rice in my cupboard so I decided to chuck that in there too.
And because I’m in France – I may as well give the french names for it all.
Ingredients (per person)
Handful of tetragonia (AKA New Zealand spinach)
One cooked beetroot, chopped (Betrave Cuit)
Handful of cooked fine beans (haricot verte)
Half a handful of chopped parsley and basil (persil et basilique)
30-40g cooked fragrant white rice (Riz parfume)
Juice of 1 lemon (citron)
Tsp maple syrup or honey (syrop d’erable ou miel de fleurs)
Tbsp Extra virgin Olive oil (huile d’olive, vierge extra)
Tsp cumin powder (cumin moulu)
Thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger, finely chopped (gingembre)
It’s a salad – you know what to do with all of this stuff I presume?
