BLUEBERRY & FETA SALAD (Vegan option)
This super-healthy salad is packed with nutrients thanks to a generous helping of dark berries and
spinach, but it tastes so decadent! Feta adds a wonderful contrast to the sweet flavours in the salad, but if you’re not keen on tangy cheese or you’re looking for a vegan alternative, you can add extra berries and almonds instead.
