Hello from the gorgeously sunny shores of Croatia! While it is cold and wintery in Sydney, I thought I would share a little bit of the European summer!
So far, my time in Croatia has been spent exploring secluded beaches, foraging for figs, picking berries down little allies and being tantalised by grower markets and homegrown vegetable stalls.
Summer and salads are the perfect combination…and where better to enjoy a salad than a secluded beach watching the sunset over the ocean.
You can make this recipe for two people or toss in some rocket and make it for four.
