I hate cooking. So when I have to prepare food for myself, it tends to be super easy stuff. Quite often it’s instant noodles or frozen pizza (I’ve ranked my fave frozen pizzas here if you’re interested). But sometimes I actually bring together fresh ingredients to form some kind of dish.
Salads are my go-to because there’s generally no stovetop even needed. In general, I put some kind of cheese in most of my salads. Recently, I completely improvised a salad of white peaches with strawberries, grape tomatoes, feta, and mint. I loved the freshness of this salad and the way the salty feta interacts with the fruit – I’d make it again in a heartbeat. This is barely even a recipe because it’s so easy. Here it is below anyway.
Serves one lonely, lazy person.
- half a punnet of strawberries
- one white peach (could also be yellow peach or a nectarine!)
- half a punnet of grape tomatoes
- about a tablespoon of your favorite feta
- extra virgin olive oil (I used ALTO Delicate olive oil)
- a few mint leaves
Slice the white peach thinly, cut the grape tomatoes in half, and slice the strawberries width-wise. Assemble all ingredients on a plate, adorn with crumbles of feta and mint leaves, then drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Done!
PS. You could probably make this a bit more exciting by grilling the peaches (but sometimes I can’t be bothered making it more complex). You could also swap mint for basil.
