No.2 Eastern Salad

As the autumn nights roll in and the seasons begin to change  you come to a unique time when both figs and pomegranates are in season. This salad pays homage to that union between these “eastern” fruits. Both add rich flavours that work well together with preserved lemon, almond and goats cheese to produce that once a year salad to remember.

Also this salad looks visually stunning and will look awesome for the family arriving for tea! Just don’t be like me and forget to add the pomegranate seeds.


100g Spinach

3 slices of Preserved Lemon

2 Figs

1 Pomegranate

1 handful flaked almond

Drizzle Olive oil or cold pressed rapeseed oil

goats cheese (optional)
