Salads Galore!

I noticed a post a while ago about compound salads and thought I'd share...
It's not really a recipe, just the way I like my salads to be, as i'm not really a fan of tossed salad unless it is pretty basic!

So here we go what you will need:
3-4 spring onions
1 small red onion (skip this if you don't like a lot of onion)
3-4 sticks of celery
cherry tomatoes
half cucumber
mixed peppers (i used green, yellow and red)
1-2 carrots
mixed lettuce (whatever you like, I had spinach, watercress and rocket)
small tin sweetcorn

To taste:
black peppercorns
mixed dried herbs (skip this if you like I just use it for a tincy bit of umph!)
fresh parsley (either will do I used both flat leaf and curled)
1 lemon
1 lime
tbs olive oil 

Everything ready to be chopped: 

Chop up ingredients and wash your mixed lettuce:

Phew this seriously took me over an hour partly because I was doing it carefully I seem to be constantly cutting my fingers to shreds so I thought I deserved a break!!

Healthy dinner makes up for the cigarette, lol dont start at me!! 

Onward, here's the things I used for a bit of flavour and also the shredded carrot:

And for the final product: 


Not mixed together hehe all have their own part of the plate, kinda like a pie chart :p
You can also add a drizzle of olive oil but I used lemon and lime juice for a summer tang (and also pickle) but I'm weird like that o_0
Great for summer and BBQ's!!
