Salad, our friend | V RSF GF

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)
Broccoli, steamed
Feta
Carrot, grated or finely sliced with a vegetable peeler
Dukka

Golden beetroots (roasted)
Roman cauliflower (steamed)
Pumpkin (roast)
Kalamata olives
Parsley
Cos lettuce
Feta
Chilli

Asparagus
Qukes (baby cucumbers)
Carrot
Baby spinach
Parsley
Feta
Capsicum
Pine Nuts
Pepitas

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.
