Colourful lamb’s lettuce salad with joghurt dressing

Even if it’s getting cold outside and autumn has finally displaced the last warm summer days, I still enjoy a fresh salad for a small lunch or supper. Admittedly, it doesn’t warm you like a hot soup or stew, but gives you plenty of vitamins and is quick and easy to prepare. Lamb’s lettuce is the perfect base for any autumn salad – it has a very mild taste and can be combined with sweet or hearty other ingedients. This salad combines lamb’s lettuce, crisp ball pepper, almonds and fruity cranberries for the perfect mixture of flavours. Give it a try! 

You need:

  • 40g lamb’s lettuce
  • 1 small yellow ball pepper
  • 1 tablespoon of dried cranberries
  • 1 tablespoon of chopped almonds
  • 2 teaspoons of yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • dried thyme
  • salt
  • pepper

Wash the lettuce and arrange on a plate. Cut the ball pepper in bite-sized pieces and mix with teh lamb’s lettuce. Top with the cranberries and the chopped almonds. Mix a dressing from yoghurt and lemon juice and season to taste with thyme, salt and pepper. Drizzle the dressing over the salad and serve with some fresh bread.
