Soft Boiled Egg, Salted Grilled Asparagus & Proscuitto Mixed Leaf Salad

Wasn't that a mouthful?!

Now that the weather has really picked up in the UK and everyone is baring a bit more skin on a day to day basis with sunnies surgically attached to heads, neither the boy or I can really stomach having a heavy dinner. This lends itself well to relying on creating some interesting and flavoursome (but still healthy and very filling) salads for the evening time.

Here's what we had for dinner last night, a gorgeous mixed leaf salad with all the usuals (cucumber, baby plum tomatoes, red onion and beetroot) as well as two slices of proscuitto each, a bunch of seasoned and grilled asparagus and a gorgeous soft boiled egg placed perfectly on top - you can still see it steaming in the photo below.

I finished my salad with a splash of balsamic vinegar, but the boy made himself a dressing consisting off balsamic vinegar, olive oil, wholegrain mustard, lemon juice and garlic with some seasoning - I dipped my finger in and it was delicious.

For anyone who is interested, I pointed this up and with the two slices of proscuitto and a 25ml drizzle of balsamic vinegar, this salad came to a measly 4 Weight Watchers Pro Points. Which is practically nothing.

Hooray for light, fresh and delicious summer time dinners.
