Warm Onion & Olive Salad – 10 minute lunch

Hello dear reader,

Last year I was lucky enough to be sent a selection of herbs from Scotherbs in celebration of becoming their 400th Facebook liker! Included in the box were young Red Chard leaves. Having only ever eaten mature Chard, with its huge crinkly leaves, this was a special treat.

I could have just made a little raw salad but I wanted something a bit different and this is what I came up with…

Warm onion and olive salad

Add in the Chard, lettuce & olives and toss for about 30 seconds to mix, wilt slightly and heat through. Spoon into a serving bowl.
