{Caper + Herb Dressing}

So this is my favourite dinner at the mo, salmon, mash, cucumber and the best green dressing ever.  I've made it over and over and can't get enough of it.  This little green dressing takes moments to pull together and goes so well with salmon and you know what else? I made it last night to go along with nigellas spanish chicken.  It bloody rocked that chicken and its also just crying out for some slow roasted lamb to hang out with.  I will be getting onto that very shortly.

Its one of those simple simple combinations that can be pulled together from your garden providing you are growing parsley, mint and have a lemon tree!  It just works and I love it, you should try it, it'll jazz up your dinner no end.

...the dressing
10 big mint leaves
1/2 cup parsley
1/4 cup olive oil
juice of half a lemon
1 tbsp capers

Chop the mint, parsley and capers finely then add them to a bowl along with the olive oil and lemon juice, stir.  Simple and fabulous.  


  1. oh dang...sounds bloody amazing, just wish the man would eat capers! will have to make this one for myself !!! xx

  2. you can hardly tell they are in there, make it for him and say nothing. he'll never know !! x

  3. Mint plant, parley plant and a lemon tree about to ripen; tick. Will have to try this, sounds delicious. I keep a big container of those delicious little salted capers in the fridge I love them so much.

  4. Will try it when I buy some salmon soon. We're not growing parsley or mint and our lemon tree just died! ha ha. Happy to buy all the ingredients though as it sounds like a healthy mid week dinner and I love the idea of having it with Nigella's Spanish Chicken and slow roasted lamb...now you're really making me hungry! Thanks Paula x

  5. What a gorgeous site! I have work to do and now I am DISTRACTED, dammit! I will return to read (and salivate) in leisure...
