Warm Lamb Salad With Minted Feta Dressing

by Tenina Holder

I'm officially on holidays. Its great, I didn't go anywhere, the kids are off hiking/camping and I have the house to myself all day...aaah! But the blog never sleeps, and I still have to eat, (eat well!) so this was a great quickie for a nice warm day. I have mint growing galore, alongside truckloads of salad greens that are all enjoying the spring weather with me! You can start from scratch if you want, or just buy a couple of components already prepared to speed it up even more. This brings a whole new meaning to 'Fast Food'. Enjoy.
