Method:

Salad dressing: Mix all the ingredients together and season to taste.

Salad: Preheat the oven to 200 °C. Place nuts on a baking tray and toast in the oven for 8-10 minutes – take care as these can easily burn. Allow to cool slightly and coarsely crush or chop.

Arrange salad ingredients on a large salad platter. Sprinkle with nuts and cheese and serve with the salad dressing. Alternatively, spoon salad ingredients in individual jars to pack for a picnic or an al fresco meal. Enjoy as a starter or side dish or see tips for more ideas.

Tips

Use sunflower seeds instead of macadamia nuts.

Turn this salad into a delicious gourmet starter or light meal by adding slivers of smoked salmon or trout. Pan-fried pork fillet or chicken, cut into strips, will also be delicious.

Goat’s cheese or ricotta will also work well with the flavours in this salad.

Try this recipe with any fresh seasonal fruit, like peaches, nectarines or watermelon instead of the berries or grapes.
