Pineapple, Kiwi & Two Cheese Quickie

This had to be a VERY quick salad today.  Far too much going on;  gardening job, shopping (because the fridge is complaining it’s so empty) and there’s even a film crew from Australia hanging around doing something (filming, I guess).

So when speed is of the essence – here’s what you’ll need:


  • 2 inches (approx) sliced cucumber
  • 1 medium wedge of  pineapple, cubed
  • 1 kiwi fruit, peeled & sliced
  • few leaves of choice (mine was Little Gem lettuce)
  •  Feta cheese cubed (approx. 4 inches x 1 inch)
  • few slices mozzarella
  • as many black olives as you can handle (I COULD eat a whole tin – but I didn’t)
  • a good dressing of olive oil/cider vinegar/grainy mustard

Throw everything together into a bowl, add dressing, toss and tuck in.

I timed myself from walking in the door with the ingredients still in my shopping bag until I was eating – 10 minutes.  Not bad, huh! Oh and that included making it look good and taking a photograph.  Gets better by the minute.
