Mimolette & cheddar Summer salad? Count me in!
This Summer salad is everything we love : colorful, healthy, delicious, quick and simple to throw together, the perfect meal for a date night in… The list of tasty attributes goes on and on.
We love this mimolette & cheddar Summer salad!
Arugula? Yes! Mimolette & sharp cheddar? Check. Tomatoes? Yup. Lentils? Yes! Walnuts? You bet. Carrot, cucumber, parsley? Of course! This salad is also topped with our absolute favorite classic French 3 ingredient vinaigrette!
This Summer has been all about highly nutritious and delicious Summer salads. When it is hot out, we love throwing together the perfect combination of raw ingredients to make a gorgeous salad.
If you have been reading this blog for a while, you know how much we love shopping at our local markets here in Paris. Going to shop at the market is part of the joy of bringing this salad together. We prepare our pups and go for a family walk to the market to gather all of the ingredients we need to pull this together.
Eating a salad (even an absolutely loaded one like this one!), makes it a whole lot easier to justify an after dinner popsicle like this sugar-free matcha chocolate popsicles (as if we needed to justify this decision)!
