Homemade mixed salad with cherry tomato, olives and cheese recipe

This salad is a perfect combination of colours, taste and freshness. Its pungent flavour, often slightly earthy works well with the dressing.

In this post  I am going to explain how to prepare the mixed salad- bruschetta bread- cutlets

Homemade mixed salad served in a large bowl

Serves 4 

Ingredients for the salad 

  • 250g mixed lettuce leaves
  • 10 green or black boneless olives
  • 100gr of cheddar cheese
  • 6 cherry tomatoes
  • a pinch of oregano
  • a pinch of salt
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • balsamic vinegar

Preparation of mixed salad 

  • Wash the mixed lettuce salad, cut lettuce leaves into small pieces. It is will be easier to eat the salad when it is ready.
  • Now cut the cherry tomatoes. Add them to the salad.
  • Add a pinch of oregano. Then add the olives and the cheddar cheese.
  • Mix all the ingredients together and when done, add a pinch of salt.
  • Tip: add now the balsamic vinegar if you like it, before the extra virgin olive oil.
  • Mix and serve.  I love salads and I always prepare them at least twice a week.

Ingredients for the bruschetta: 

  • 8 slices of ciabatta bread, sliced as suits you.
  • extra virgin olive oil, for brushing
  • 1 large garlic glove, peeled and helved
  • To prepare the ciabatta, brush both sides of the bread with some oil. Toast both sides under a grill until lightly golden in colour. Rub one side of the bread with the cut side of garlic glove.

  • To complete the dish, prepare the cutlets.
  • Tip: To give this shape you can work the chicken with your hand after cutting each chicken breasts into small pieces.

  • When it is ready to serve, put one slide or 2 of ciabatta bread on each salad place.
  • Layer the salad leaves or on the top or as side as I did.
  • Repeat with the other ciabatta bread. Then scatter some more cheese on the top if it suits you.
  • Place two or three tomato halves around the ciabatta.

Now enjoy this meal, as much I did. Any one will love it especially kids.
