So in the name of fairness (after showing Ollie’s porridge yesterday), I thought I’d better show Daisy’s standard breakfast, which is a little unusual. Every morning she asks for a Greek salad. I don’t know where this has come from. We are not Greek & have never been there on holiday with them, but I can hardly complain. It’s a bit of a faff & sometimes I beg her to have a piece of toast like any other child, BUT at the end of the day she’s voluntarily asking for vegetables so it’s hard to say no.
This is how she likes it:
INGREDIENTS (serves 1)
4 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
Cucumber, 5cm section with skin cut off then chopped
5 green olives, cut in half
Feta cheese, cut into 5 small cubes
Olive oil, to drizzle on top
Balsamic vinegar, to drizzle ( optional)
Put all the ingredients in a bowl with a little olive oil on top. Voila!
