Subway salad

So this is a recipe that I made up using fridge treasures. It’s a great side salad for any dish, but is also tasty enough to pack for lunch the next day. I call this salad the subway salad because to me it tastes exactly like my favourite sub!


·        1 bag of mixed lettuce
·        Half a red onion diced
·        2 medium carrots, grated
·        A handful of mozzarella cheese, grated
·        3 tomatoes wedged
·        (and the secret ingredient) 3 large pickles diced

For the Dressing (Sub ranch)

·         1 half a cup of thick olive oil
·         1 teaspoon of salt
·         1 teaspoon of pepper
·         1 table spoon of mayonnaise
·         1 table spoon red wine vinegar
·         1 table spoon of mustard (English)

Preparation method

In a small bowl whisk together olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, mayo and mustard. Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together lettuce, red onion, carrot, cheese, pickles and tomatoes toss to combine. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Enjoy! And just a little tip- add the dressing before serving- you don’t want to end up with a salad soup!
