The perfect salad for a spring weekend

This is super green and super delicious. I made this spontaneously and randomly it came out perfect. Here is the simple recipe for two people.

For the dressing (Put this all in a blender) :1 ripe avocado, 1 clove of garlic, 1 freshly squeezed lemon juice, a handful of fresh coriander, half a chilli or sprinkle some chilli flakes, 1 tsp of English mustard or American mustard, drizzle your fine olive oil, 1 tsp of black pepper and a sprinkle of salt. AND BLITZ TO A CREAMY PASTE.

I prepped the dressing whilst the pasta was cooking, you can literally use any pasta you have in your cupboard. Also, chop up 1 small red onion, some leafy greens you have in the fridge, open a can of tuna of your choice add all this including the dressing once the pasta has been drained and cooled down. Mix it well to eat or leave in the fridge for later.

And enjoy! You can take this to a picnic, a bbq, a gathering, lunch, after a dip in the sea, it’s so filling and yummy. I hope you make this and like it as much as I did.

My Auntie’s Orange cake Recipe

During my lockdown I was craving my aunties cake and remembered the memories we shared as a family when we ate her cake in the summers I spent with them in Lebanon. I messaged her and she sent me the recipe. By the way, I’m not good at baking because I dislike precise measurements and no matter what I do my cakes always come out flat and tasteless. BUT, before you log off this one turned out so good and I’m so proud of myself.

Here is what you need to do; 5 eggs, 1 tbsp of vanilla extract, 1 whole grated orange zest into a bowl and mix

Then use the same mug for these ingredients; 1 & 1/5 cup of sugar, 3 cups of flour, 3 tsp of baking powder, 1 & 1/5 cup of freshly squeezed orange juice, 1/5 cup of rapeseed oil, 5 tbsp of water. Add one ingredient at a time and mix.

Pre heat the oven at 180 Celsius with your desired baking tray. Then brush with butter and sprinkle sugar around the tray. This gives the cake a nice sticky mix but it shouldn’t stick to the tray.

Pour the cake mix and into the oven for 45 mins. I have an electrical oven. Everyone’s oven is different and you know your oven better than me so gage how long you will leave the cake in the oven for. I hope you like it. I loved this and I have a slice with my cup of tea every day🥰.

The finalé. I flipped it onto a plate after it cooled down.
