Salad should be so much more than Lettuce, Tomato & Cucumber! Use a good combination of greens, salad fruits (e.g. peppers, avocados, olives), seeds, nuts and beans to create filling balanced meals. With salads, recipes are only ever suggestions – hence the rather vague ingredients lists on the following pages. Becoming a salad wizard is about learning which flavours work best together. Use a few really tasty ingredients sparingly -such as fresh Basil, Mint & Coriander, sun-dried Tomatoes, dry-roasted seeds and Capers.
Don’t limit yourself to food shopping! Germinate your own Alfalfa, Sunflowers, Mung beans, Chick peas, Quinoa etc.
Easily done with expensive specialist contraptions or a shallow dish and a warm window sill.
Excellent wild saladings include Ground Elder, Sorrel, Wild Garlic, Chickweed, Sweet Cicely, Lime, Dandelions and many, many more…
