How to Make Croutons

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 200°C

  • Place the Ciabatta, a quarter of the garlic, the oregano and half the olive oil in a roasting dish.

  • Season well, mix thoroughly and spread the Ciabatta out in the dish.

  • Place in the oven for 10 minutes or until the Ciabatta is browned and crisp.

  • Remove from the oven, cool and reserve.

  • Place the Cos and spinach leaves on a large serving platter.

  • Sprinkle the Ciabatta on top.

  • Season the lamb.

  • Heat the remaining olive oil in a frying pan over moderate heat and pan-fry the lamb for 3-4 minutes on each side until pink and juicy but cooked.

  • Remove from the pan. Allow to rest for 5 minutes then slice thinly.

  • Place the sliced lamb on the salad.

  • Sprinkle the feta, tomatoes, cucumber, olives and sundried tomatoes on top.

  • Mix the extra virgin olive oil and vinegar together. Taste and season, then drizzle this evenly over everything.

  • Tip:

  • Make sure washed salad greens are dried well before using in a salad. Any residual water will dilute the dressing making it watery and tasteless.
