Want to know something weird – I adore fruits in my salad…. but I don’t like fruit salad.
I’ll eat all the fruits in a fruit salad separately – – but add them all in a bowl and I’ll pass – weird right? I think I just don’t like them touching … I know, that sounds creepy – – sorry 😦
Want to know something else, I adore salads. They’re just so fresh and versatile. Whatever you have on hand, throw it on top some greens – add some grains, nuts or seeds and *bham* you have yourself a salad.
Winter, spring, summer or fall – – I would be content to eat salads morning, noon and night (but then after, please pass me the most luxurious, butter filled cookie you have ;))
It’s about balance. If I eat a salad or two, I can eat desert ( a hundred times – – what, *who said that* lol)
So, ladies and gents – – I present to you one of my favourite salads.
