Easy Tasty Side Salad

This is a super easy, economical salad that is quick to put together and will be popular with the whole family. My sister showed it to me when I stayed with her for a couple of weeks. I loved it and so do my family. It has become our new go-to side salad. You can also turn this into a delicious lunch by adding shredded chicken when you add the cheese.


  • ½ iceberg lettuce, shredded
  • 2 medium tomatoes, diced (you can replace this with cherry or perino tomatoes)
  • ½ green cucumber, diced
  • 100 grams plain goats cheese (also works with fetta)
  • 2 heaped teaspoons basil pesto
  • 2 tablespoons garlic aoili


  • Mix the lettuce, tomato and cucumber in a salad bowl.
  • Mix in the basil pesto, until everything is coated.
  • Crumble the goat cheese on top, then mix through.
  • Add the garlic aoili and stir through until everything is coated.
  • Serves 6 as a side salad, or 3-4 as a salad.
