from The Accidental Vegetarian, Simon Rimmer, Mitchell Beazley, 2010.
I really like this cookbook. The author, a carnivore (to go part way to explaining the title), has a way of combining items in a way that is just that little bit different so you find you have a familiar recipe enlivened.
This is an ordinary salad but it has a special touch: cooked chat potatoes, green beans with capers for an added bit of flavour, added to the usual greens. Then add the tomatoes and green olives. Top it all off with a great dressing (although following the proportions for the dressing I would have had enough for several salads).
