Salad fatigue? You’ve done the kale salads, mastered the Greek, experimented with watercress and endive and Boston lettuce has become a refrigerator staple. But what next?
This little Spring number made with cucumber, avocado and apple. I wish I had devised this recipe. Instead, I came across it at www.food52.com, a blog that brings together cooks and lovers of good simple food. Their manifesto is:
If you cook, your family will eat dinner together.
If you cook, you will naturally have a more sustainable household.
If you cook, you’ll set a lifelong example for your children.
If you cook, you’ll understand what goes into food and will eat more healthily.
If you cook, you’ll make your home an important place in your life.
If you cook, you’ll make others happy.
If you cook, people will remember you.
I can only concur whole-heartedly with these words of wisdom. Don’t be fearful of cooking, particularly salads. It’s more assembly than anything else – like a tapas plate filled with vegetables, cheese and nuts. Enjoy!Photo Credit: Sarah Shatz
