I was staring at the contents of the fridge, wondering what to make for lunch without having to spend ages in the kitchen.  So chopped up a few things, threw a dressing over it and voila!  Something so simple tasted so nice that I made it again the next day!

Deliciously light in flavour but satisfying, yet filling.  The basil and lemon dressing could be poured over any salad and it would be just as delicious.  I always think that the dressing is half of the taste of a salad.  It can make such a difference.

We attended a fancy wedding many years ago that served up a bowl of lettuce for the vegetarian starter.  Just a bowl of fancy lettuce.  Not even a tomato or slither of cucumber.  Thankfully the dressing was so lovely that it stopped me from picking up the bowl, stomping into the kitchen and demanding a few answers or slapping a few staff.  A bowl of lettuce!  Bah!  Seriously? What was that?  As vegetarians in a meat-eating world you kind expect a few mistakes but a bowl of lettuce has a bit of a “go home” vibe!  However it shows how important a dressing is but does not still make up for the bowl of lettuce.

If you don’t have any feta cheese to hand this would be just as delicious with goats cheese too.  Or leave the cheese out if you wish.
