How do you people feel about eating healthy food? I thought it might be helpful to share salad suggestions.
Last week we were on holiday with my mum, who still insists that salad = lettuce (the greenest sort), tomato and cucumber, with salad cream on the side. I am not so sure.
Among the great and good of the Uborka! clan, there must surely be some tastier salads out there. You can showcase your best in your own post, or add to the comments below.
One of my favourite summer salads is Nigel Slater’s Bread and Tomato Salad, based on a classic Italian salad. The key is to get the best, ripest tomatoes you can otherwise it simply doesn’t work. http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2004/jul/11/foodanddrink.features2
We eat salads almost every other day. All kinds.
I tend to default to lettuce, tomato and pepper (can’t stand cucumber) but vary the proteins I add – cold chicken, feta cheese, avocado, bacon, ham.
I could do with some more ideas too!
When we go away with my sister she makes salad that comprises lettuce, cucumber, pepper, tomato and salad cream on the side. My children (and husband) all go wow this is great why don’t you make salad like this etc etc. yet somehow I still don’t 🙁
Jamie those are some good salad recipes. Radish mint and feta sounds lovely.
Ottolenghi’s bean, mange tout, orange and hazelnut salad is very fine, although I always resent the fact that every Ottolenghi recipe calls for 5 billion different ingredients and 20 years preparation time*.
* – may have exaggerated.
I find Ottolenghi intriguing. I inherited some fancy schmancy ingredients from Pockless, which I think are good for Otto recipes, but I don’t have any of his books (yet) so I have no idea what to do with them.
