In my quest to get more fruit and non starchy veg, fibre and vitamins into my diet, I created a delicious salad the other day which we enjoyed along with some steak and a baked potato. I really love salads and I could eat them every day of the year, and to be honest . . . every meal! The Toddster . . . he's not a real salad lover, but I like to think that I am converting him, one delicious salad at a time!
This was a really delicious way of getting in not one or two vegetables, but three or more. Celery is a vegetable I am sure and tomatoes . . . well, I know that they are classified as a fruit, but they're in there too!
One tip for making sure your tomatoes taste really nice all year long is to keep them out on the counter. Tomatoes are one thing that will continue to ripen after you pick it. If you use them straight out of the refrigerator and shops . . . they will be hard and lacklustre . . .
Leave them on the counter top for a few days and they come alive with beautiful flavours. Not quite as tasty as fresh off the vine, but a hundred times tastier than right out of the pack. Trust me on this!
Not only was this salad delicious, but it was filled with colour and texture and lots of flavours! The dressing is a simple one. You could spark it up a bit by adding some anchovy or olives, or even some garlic.
It is sure to be enjoyed. Simple to make. Delicious. Healthy. That's a triple plus in my way of thinking! Enjoy!
