We had such a heavy traditional Christmas lunch, even to be polite I go with the flow and eat my mum’s prepared lunch but I find it hard so I have a little, then I rest to digest.
This is my post boxing day recipe to use up some of that free range organic left over turkey.
Cooked turkey pulled apart
1 small cos lettuce cut into small pieces
1 sourdough bread for croutons ( rip into little squares roll in olive oil and sea salt and pepper and bake for 10 minutes – and crispy)
1 cucumber diced into small pieces
french green beans trimmed and blanched for 2 minutes
dressing for salad
2 coodled eggs (runny only cooked for 2 minutes in boiled water)
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1/3 extra virgin olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
Put all the dressing ingredients above in a blender careful not to split egg and oil mix (if it separates start again)
Place all the salad ingredients into a large bowl and mix through dressing so it”s coated well and serve
