Cherry & Basil Salad

Summer really is the best time of the year when it comes to fresh produce. I’ve always loved cherries, and remember fondly how we picked them through our window in my Grandma’s summer house when I was little. This is the first time I use cherries in a salad, and I found that they paired really well with basil.

Salad details: cooked whole bulghur (you probably know by now that this my favourite grain to add to salads), green lentils, greens beans, radishes, cucumber, basil and cherries. A roasted seed mix for some crunch (pumpkin, white and black sesame, sunflower seeds lightly roasted in a dry pan), and a Dijon mustard vinaigrette for that extra flavour.
