summer salad- Frugal Friday

This is my standby summer salad at the moment. It’s finding itself teamed up with a whole heap of dishes, as you can make a big batch of it and it’s not going to go soggy when left in the fridge for a few days.

Summer salad

Chopped up raw kale leaves, (don’t worry about the stalks, too chewy)

Steamed and diced carrots

Steamed corn cut off the cob

Sliced capsicum (peppers)


If you have any other seasonal goodies hanging around, pop them in too.

Dress with your favourite dressing.

  1. Oh this looks delicious! We love growing kale-oodles of it but haven’t had it in a salad yet. Are you still hanging in there? Can’t be too much longer now. All the very best if I don’t get a chance to say it again before the new arrival 😀


  2. wow that looks like the kind of salad a nutritionist would use as a perfect example of a good colourful meal.

    I would love to hear some of your salad dressing suggestions sometime…you know, when you have spare time, maybe in a few years! x


    • Tomato sauce?…
      ok, maybe not. Olive oil, balsamic, lemon juice, mayo, dijon mustard- not all together, but there is usually a concoction of several of them floating around my salads. (Although I did like Anna’s suggestion (above) of a honey orange dressing.)


  3. I have recently discovered the wonderment that is kale. Such a versatile and tasty vegetable! You salad looks fab and is Food Patrol allowable with a little tweak. Bonus points to you! X
