Spinach, Cucumber & Balsamic Salad

I'm always banging on about how the simplest things are the best - and this is another good example. This is an excellently simple salad that features few ingredients and yet is nevertheless especially delicious. This spinach, tomato and cucumber salad goes with many other dishes, not least Paella, Pasta and Pizza. Red onion would be a good addition, as would a sprig or two of fresh basil...


  • Spinach
  • Cucumber
  • Tomato
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Pepper
  • Olive Oil

Wash the Spinach leaves carefully – and dry on kitchen paper

Wash and finely slice the Cucumber

Wash and quarter the Tomatoes

Arrange the Spinach in a bowl or on a serving plate, and cover with sliced Tomatoes and Cucumber

Drizzle with a tablespoon or so of Balsamic Vinegar (don’t use too much, it can be strong stuff!)

Add a very fine drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and a crunch of Black Pepper

Serve… and enjoy
