Recreating restaurant meals

On Monday I had the day off work and I went to Brighton with my parents. It was wonderful – the sun was shining, the pier was buzzing and the Lanes were as full of lovely things as ever. I really love Brighton. I also love the wealth of independant restaurants and cafés.

We went to Food For Friends for dinner, which is one of our favourites. Both my mum and I had their haloumi, mango and avocado salad with wasabi cashew nuts. Utterly delicious.

This evening I was very lucky as my mum decided to try and recreate it for us. Below is her take on the same thing. Also delicious. It’s a brilliant flavour combination – salad leaves, mango, avocado, grilled haloumi. Mum added red pepper as well since we had one.

Who said eating out couldn’t be both healthy and delicious?!
