Salad with leftover lamb

Salad with leftover lamb


Summer salads are great but you do need to get a bit of variety going.  With last night’s leftover roast lamb and roasted potato sliced up, I created a salad which turned out very tasty.  


On a large platter, I put a layer of iceberg lettuce then a few slices of tomato, cucumber, yellow capsicum and onion.  Some sliced gherkin.  Then a few croutons I had on hand.  Drizzled some of the sauces I got from a Christmas Hamper on top – caramelised onion, roasted capsicum and sweet chilli sauce.  Along with some extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice.

  2. This sounds so good -- and what a great use of leftover lamb. I need to remember this idea when the farmers markets open again. I love addition of the caramelized onion.

    1. Our farmer's markets operate year round so we are very lucky - went to one this morning and bought some traditional Cornish pasties amongst other things
