Since we’re heading back to Asia soon I’m trying to eat as many salads as possible. I just love the crunch and freshness of a proper salad. It brings my wilted body back to life.
If I haven’t been eating healthy (too many chips or fries) my body just begs for some fresh crisp veggies. I could just eat salads all day long.
But if I’m going to do that I’ve got to have some variety. I can’t just eat a standard Ceasar salad day after day.
I like to switch things up with the veggies, the protein the dressing. There’s really an endless variety of possibilities with salads.
I love making salads at home because I get to decide how much of each ingredient I want. I have ordering a salad only to find there are two pieces of avocado and a sad excuse for a sliver of smoked salmon. It just makes me mad.
So don’t even risk the frustration. Make your own salads at home.
This was a brunch salad I made for my mom and me which I came up with as I opened the fridge.
Don’t you just love those days when you come up with a recipe on the fly and it turns out to be a hit?
Got to love those.
This is a fairly simple salad with crunchy romaine lettuce, hard boiled eggs, smoked salmon, avocados, green onions, a sprinkling of sesame seeds and a homemade asian dressing.
Perfect brunch salad to start the day off right, Crunchy romaine with eggs, smoked salmon, avocado, green onions and a homemade Asian dressing. Yum.
