I am a major salad fiend and the first couple of weeks after moving into my new flat all I would eat was tomato and aubergine salad which I eventually weened myself off of after realising just how much oil it takes to cook the aubergines! My new favourite salad/salsa though is avocado and tomato. I absolutely love it!
It's so simple to make and once you've made it once - there's no going back - you'll be hooked. I use about six medium sized salad tomatoes, 2 avocados, the juice of half a lime, a handful of coriander leaves, 2 red birds eye chillies and half a red onion. Cut and slice as you see fit, mix it together et voila the perfect salad/salsa! Seriously I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! I eat a lot of food so you'd probably want to half the amount of food you use if you're just cooking for one!
Okay so I have a small confession to make... the squash and the sweet potatoes were bought in a bag ready diced and all I did was follow the instructions on the back of the packet and add a bit of garlic and rosemary. I know, I know I'm terrible - how could I? But to be fair I did everything else from scratch and if you've ever tried cutting into a squash you'll understand why I bought it ready cut!
For the pork I browned it on both sides then added a small glass of white wine and dried sage and cooked until the wine had pretty much evaporated and just left a nice kind of glaze on the pork.
