Warm Spring veg salad

I always find it quite amusing how people start acting at the beginning of Spring. All of a sudden the gym’s are packed, the lines at the drive-thru’s are shorter and people are buying a whole truck load more fresh veg and fruit. Ok, the latter might be because the fruit and veg this time of year are just sublime. Fresh, crisp and green vegetables like sugar snap peas, asparagus and courgettes make it so easy to want to be healthy.

That’s why I took full advantage of the seasonality of these vegetables (except for the Asparagus as I couldn’t find any..go figure), and use them in a wonderful Spring veg salad. I knew the sweetness of the steamed veg would go well with the saltiness of Feta cheese and to round everything off, I made a zesty vinaigrette with chilli and garlic.

To make a more substantial, vegetarian meal, you could add some steamed new potatoes and toss everything together. Or you could do what I did, I served this salad with roast chicken for a simple, delicious meal.
