With grandparents coming over for lunch I needed to find a salad that would complement the lamb shanks requested by our special guests.
The lamb shank recipe was a slow cooked one, with tomato, chilli and honey being the main flavours. The result of the dish is a rich, thick pile of decadence and so a fresh, light salad was definitely required.
My favourite thing about this salad was the lightly sautéed red onion, which added a lovely sweetness to the dish.
With a white linen tablecloth, I instructed Trev to serve up everybody's salad just in case! Thankfully there were no accidents and our lovely linen setting remained intact for our next special event.
