Madhouse salad recipe : Beef, olive and nectarine salad

Here's another colourful plateful of salad that I put together. I wasn't entirely sure these flavours would work together but they did actually, really well !

 Beef, olive and nectarine salad

ingredients :

several curly salad leaves
1/4 cucumber
a handful of cherry tomatoes
1 nectarine, diced
cooked beef (leftover from our barbecue !)
a handful of olives
a spring onion, finely sliced
a drizzle of Wagamama spicy chilli, coriander & ginger dressing (which I reviewed here but you could make your own)
a handful of Fresh Gourmet croutons of your choice (my preference for this salad is the Cheese & Garlic ones)

Preparation :

Roughly shred the lettuce with your hands and arrange on a plate. Lay out slices of cucumber and cherry tomato halves around the edges to look pretty.

Place a big pile of freshly slices mango in the middle. Lay sliced cold beef over the top and scatter a handful of olives over the top.

Drizzle with spicy dressing and scatter over some finely chopped springonion.

Finish off with a generous sprinkling of crunchy croutons at the last minute.
