Summer Salads : Tomato, Mozzarella & Fine Bean
As I'm trying (in vain) to stick to the Weight Watchers plan, I decided to make a herb butter using my Living Flavour thyme and some Connaught Gold low fat butter (half the WW points of the real thing and no difference in taste). I added some crushed garlic, ground mixed peppercorns and chopped flat parsley, blended it thoroughly and put it in the fridge to chill and allow the flavours to develop.
Salad is a perfect companion to steak and I decided to make a tomato salad with a twist - using a packet of Aldi fine beans to add colour and texture.

Add the salad dressing and basil just before serving.
This was our absolutely gorgeous first dinner of the summer - the Ribeye steak, seared on the barbeque, with the herb butter, the tomato salad and some new potatoes.
