Spinach, Baby Gem and Herb Salad with Dates

Spinach, Baby Gem and Herb Salad with Dates and Cashew Nuts


This salad honestly couldn't be easier to make. It’s a one bowl wonder that is full of fresh flavour. It’s the perfect accompaniment with a rich meat like roasted lamb shoulder but will work equally on it’s own as a tasty lunch.
