Green salad with simple vinaigrette

Serves: 4

This is a really simple yet really vibrant salad I whipped up today. It looks – and is – so healthy.

I served it with grilled, tandoori chicken and potatoes which I sliced thinly, salted and oiled and cooked until golden in the oven.

What a winner of a Saturday lunch!
