Saturday nights in are one of our favorite ways to spend the Saturday night. A bottle of wine, some cheese, good food, dessert and of course Netflix. Why would we go out?
Saving money is one of our big goals for 2016, a wedding to plan and pay for, additionally we are looking at property in Australia; we all know how expensive that can be! Where am I going with this, well making affordable delicious dinners at home has become a skill of mine and I thought I would share.
Super simple salad-Italian style
2 cups mixed tomatoes (I used Cherry tomatoes because they are much sweeter in Singapore and you can't always get your hands on good quality larger mixed ones)
Tip: If your tomatoes are hard when you buy them, ripen next to bananas in a warmer spot in the house for 2 days and they will taste lots sweeter. I leave mine in the fruit bowl they start to smell delicious and the color is beautiful.
1 red chili sliced finely
Fresh marjoram leaves 1/2 cup roughly
Fresh Basil leaves 1/2 cup roughly
Mozzarella balls torn
Olive oil 1 tbsp
Slice tomatoes (if cherry tomatoes in half) and layer tomatoes on a plate. Scatter the sliced chili and herb leaves over the tomatoes. Lastly tear up the mozzarella carefully and place over the tomatoes and chili. Dress the salad with lemon juice, olive oil and salt. It was the perfect side dish with our chili tomato and prawn pasta, coming soon!! :)
My life really does revolve around food! I love learning about produce, reading new recipes, trying to create my own. Here are some of my food, travel and creative journeys, I hope you find them interesting or just delicious!
