Recipes 10/11/2017

Summer is all about salads and this puts a cherry twist on the classic combination of greens, blue cheese and walnuts. Sure to impress at your next dinner party or BBQ, especially with a rotisserie roast chook!

Serves: 4-6    Prep Time: 10 Minutes


1 Superb Herbs Cress plant, leaves only
1 Superb Herbs Kale plant, leaves only
1 half wheel blue cheese (We love Castello Blue)
1/4 cup walnuts (we buy Alison’s Pantry)
1/4 cup Barkers Cherry balsamic vinaigrette (or homemade maple dressing see below)

To serve:
Waitoa free range chicken, rotisserie roasted on the BBQ


In a bowl, toss together the cress and kale. Dot over small pieces of the blue cheese and sprinkle the walnuts, then set aside.

Season to taste and drizzle over Barker’s Cherry Balsamic vinaigrette.

Serve with your freshly roasted rotisserie chook.

Alternative tip: Try a maple dressing…

In a jug or jar, whisk or shake together maple syrup, vinegar and olive oil until it all thickens slightly. Season to taste, then drizzle over the salad just before serving (use 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup, 2 tablespoons apple cider or white wine vinegar, 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (We love Olivado).
