Recently I’ve had relatively little time to dedicate to blogging or cooking – I’ve been working and writing my CV. In fact all I’ve managed to prepare in the past couple of days has been an extremely simple yet fantastically tasty egg and rocket salad. I think simple food is sometimes the best – meals which really show off individual flavours well. The important thing to remember is that you want to showcase the taste of every individual ingredient, so you don’t want to use a flavour which is going to overpower the others. So when making this salad it’s probably best only to use a small squeeze of lemon juice because otherwise you’ll find that it’ll dominate the dish rather than improve it. From a cooking perspective make sure the poached egg is runny inside as it forms an integral part of the salad dressing.
