Delicious side dishes are as important as the main dish. You can add so much flavor to your lunch or dinner by testing different kinds of side dishes. This side dish has loads of flavor, color, protein and vitamins. A great choice for a side dish for your next chicken, fish or steak lunch / dinner.
All my recipes are for two servings.
- 2 eggs
- 20 mini tomatoes (cherry or mini plum)
- Romaine lettuce
- 4 twists from Pasta Rossa grinder (or use 1 teaspoon of lemon pepper)
- 1 avocado
- 1 lemon
- 2 tbsp green pesto
- Fresh thyme
How to prepare:
Try to get Pasta Rossa mixture. If you cannot find it, you can use lemon pepper. Cook the eggs in boiling water for 7 minutes. Put them in cold water, so it is easier to peel them after a few minutes. Cut each egg into four pieces.
Wash the tomatoes and the romaine lettuce. Cut the lettuce leaves in half. Divide these between two plates. Divide the tomatoes between the plates. Cut the avocado in half, remove the stone and take the fruit off the skin with a spoon. Cut the avocado fruit into bite-size pieces. Add the avocado to the salad. Add also the eggs. Sprinkle lovely pesto on the salad.
Cut the lemon in half and drizzle lemon juice on the salad. Season everything with pasta rossa spice (or lemon pepper). Decorate with fresh thyme for extra wonderful taste.
