Free Healthy Recipe - Green Salad with Grapes and Capers

Dairy free, Gluten free, Low carbohydrate, Wheat Free

There are many things that signify the start and end of summer to me - one is when green seedless grapes are affordable to buy: when they're in season, grapes are cheap, loved by everyone and provide a good source of vitamin K. In this case, combined with the contrasting flavour of capers, basil, mixed greens and nuts, the grapes maketh the meal.

Ingredients
2 tbsp tea oil
¼ cup salted capers, drained
1 cup basil, shredded
3 cups mixed leaves
Method

Heat the oil in a frying pan and add the capers and basil. Fry until both are crisp. Remove from the pan and set aside on absorbent paper to drain any excess oil.

Cut the grapes in half and using the flat surface of a large knife, gently break the macadamia nuts into smaller chunks.
Combine the oil, vinegar, mustard and seasoning.
Toss the dressing over the greens. Toss capers, basil, grapes and nuts through the greens and serve.

Note: Grapes can be stored in a plastic bag in the crisper section of the fridge. Don't wash grapes before storing as they mould quicker.
