- 1/2 cucumber

- olive oil

- red wine vinegar, or apple cider vinegar

- 4 tbsp basil pesto

- squeeze of lime or lemon juice

- salt and pepper, to taste


Mix and match your salad ingredients. Don't have cucumber? Leave it out! Have some radishes in the fridge, add them to the mix!


1. Roughly chop the salad greens, tomatoes, cucumber and celery, and mix together in a bowl. Season. 

2. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, vinegar and pesto until combined. Season to taste.
