There really is only one place to go after an intense early morning ski lesson at Chill Factor in Manchester, and that is the food hall at Trafford Centre!
With an abundance of fast food chains it is hard to break your way into nutritious territory, however with Spud-U-Like’s new light bites (which, don’t be fooled, are still US size portions) you can almost get there!
I love working out how to recreate dishes at home and these dishes of crushed baked potatoes, salad leaves, crumbled creamy feta and a lemon and basil vinaigrette are a no-brainer for an easy mid-week dinner.
All you will need is:
Rocket or mixed dark green salad leaves
1 packet of feta cheese (preferably low cal – it is a Wednesday after all)
For the dressing:
2 tbsp good extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp cider vinegar
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Handful of basil – roughly chopped
3 spring onions – finely sliced
Salt & pepper
Cook the potatoes any way you want – bake them, roast them, boil them, even mash them – whatever you find easiest and tastiest.
Mix all your dressing ingredients together in a jug or small bowl and season to taste – give them a good mix with a fork.
Once the potatoes are ready, put on to the plate of your choice, throw on a large handful of leaves, crumble on half a packet of feta and drizzle with dressing.
Serve, enjoy and feel healthily smug!
