I love salads. One of my favorites is
Greek Salad - Very simple to make.
Dice 1 cucumber
I med/large red onion
chop either 2-3 large tomatos, or cut in half a package of grape tomatos
1 large chunk of good feta
Your choice of greek dressing
toss all together... makes a lovely, fresh salad.
Of course, you can add lettuce and/or olives to the above mix. I add lettuce to stretch it, but olives and me.. don't mix well.
half a cabbage, diced
shredded carrots (2-3)
quarter of a white onion, diced
three apples, sliced
apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper
I love making this with fresh picked apples, nothing compares. But macintosh works well year round, just look for the freshest ones you can find. I
like eating this immediately, rather than letting it sit like a lot of slaws.
Then there's the typical
pasta salad -
Cook as much pasta as you like
I normally throw in like half a bottle of italian salad dressing with a huge amount of pasta
and let it sit and absord for a few hours
then add mayo, diced peppers and celery and maybe a few diced carrots and let it sit overnight.
It makes a nice garlicy, tangy salad.
You can also do an easy greek pasta salad the same way -
Just cook your pasta, toss with greek dressing, a slash of lemon, cucumbers, tomatos, red onion and feta and let sit for a bit for flavours to absord.
So what are some of your favorites salads?
