Citrus and Radicchio Salad with Feta

It seems most people eat salads more in the summer but I crave them all year around and although I am NOT a fan of  leaves in my salad, Radicchio is one of the few I will tolerate.  Yes I HATE to say it but I despise roquette, (arugula), lettuce, iceberg and frisée lettuce (the worst). I LOVE a fresh spinach leave, lams lettuce (salade de blé) and Radicchio. MY salad does not require any leaves to be honest – just throw together some lovely veg, fruit and nuts and BOOM you got a tasty salad.

I am also not a big fan of drippy, yogurty dressings – give me a splash of some quality olive oil and a fruity vinegar or lemon juice; that’s all I need.

What you will almost always find in my salads is fruit and veg click here for my salad in a jar with bulgur.

This is a colourful citrus salad  is amazingly versatile: serve it as a Saturday light lunch, a colourful midweek dinner or a zingy starter for vegetarians.

Any which way you serve it, I guarantee your taste buds will love it!
