0 More Salad Recipes, Upon Request.....
One of the recent commenters on this blog asked if I had any more salad recipes. Well, yes, I do have several, but other than the two lone recipes for Gimesamwata Sarada & Mesclun & Baby Spinach Greens with Gorgonzola, Pear, & Candied Pecans, I haven't posted any more of them yet on this blog. I guess the way I look at salad is that most salads are so basic & easy, that I usually don't bother with writing up recipes for them.
However, some salads are something special, & require a tad bit more effort than just cutting up veggies, throwing them into a bowl, et le voilà -- which is why I made an exception to that rule. And yes, I do have some more interesting & sophisticated salad recipes that require more than the above efforts & dropping in some salad tongs. ;-)
So, to honor this commenter's request, I've decided to post some of the more interesting salad recipes over the next few weeks/months. Look out, it's going to be salads galore.
Now mind you, my definition of a salad actually does require raw veggies, so you'll never see any of those "faux" salads -- potato salad, egg salad, tuna salad, or pasta salad -- type of recipes from me. I'm a purist when it comes to salad. Plus, those types of so-called salads are NOT salads in my book. That really takes the definition of salad & stretches it far past its true definition. ;-)
Plus those types of recipes usually require lots of mayo & therefore aren't the most healthy of "salads." Anyhow, enough ranting about some of food pet peeves, & onto the salads!
So stay tuned for some salad recipes.......
