SALAD – it’s a word we often associate with health freaks “I’ll just have a salad thanks” but in reality you can make some really flavoursome salads, full of nutrients. My family has always had salads as a component of dinner every night. With me being the only family member who doesn’t eat meat. Or pasta. Or potato…..I am often relegated to the salad section.
Here are a few of my recent favourites….
Baby kale (less ‘frilly’ than kale & more like rocket)
Carrot, grated or finely sliced with a vegetable peeler
Golden beetroots (roasted)
Roman cauliflower (steamed)
Qukes (baby cucumbers)
Voila! Three super easy salads – vegetables, cheese, seeds & different textures really make it appealing. Eating a variety of flavours seems to make you feel more satisfied (I do didn’t believe it when I first read it).
It also is an easy option if you’re entertaining guests who require gluten-free &/or vegetarian meals.
