3. Salad in a Croissant

Have your salad in a croissant with this recipe. Take fresh salad leaves, halved cherry tomatoes, onion slices and chopped cucumber. Mix them with rock salt, lemon juice and pepper. Allow it to stand for 5 minutes for the spices to blend in the flavour. Spread the mixture on a buttered toast and drizzle orange marmalade lightly on top as a dressing. This will give you a sweet and tangy flavour.
