I’m having a slight sense of humour failure issue today. I’m 100% positive my technological devices are plotting against me. Firstly, my computer wouldn’t recognise my SD card, and secondly the backlight on my Samsung Ultrabook decided it had had enough of being bright and shiny, and has moved onto the dark side. There are no cookies there.
So I’m typing a post, using my tv as a monitor, since the computer monitor I have is VGA, and this fancy ass piece of nonsense laptop ONLY has an HDMI output. Because modern technology. My HDMI cable is 1.5m long. This means I’m practically sitting with my nose on the tv screen, typing like a severly short sighted person. On the plus side, my photo looks awesome on an HD screen!
I made this salad after having something similar at my mom’s house. She got the recipe off the back of a packet of spinach. This is my adapted version using the ingredients I had available.
- 2 tbsp sesame seeds (I used a mixture of dark and light)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp sweet Indonesian soya sauce
- 2 tbsp lime juice
- ½ medium red onion
- boiling water
- 1 tbsp lime juice
- 200g baby spinach leaves, washed
- 150g feta, cubed
- Add the sesame seeds to a frying pan on a high heat. Allow them to cook until they are golden brown in colour.
- Mix the olive oil, soya sauce and lime juice together, and add the toasted sesame seeds.
- Thinly slice the red onion.
- Place in a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave to stand for 5 minutes, before draining and covering with the lime juice. Leave for a further 5 minutes.
- In a bowl, add the baby spinach leaves, the cubed feta and the red onions.
- Pour on the dressing just before serving.
