Am I loving making salads for lunch at the moment because I am the only one in the house and therefore not feeling guilty about making something no one else will eat or am I loving making salads at the moment as I’m getting a peculiar kick out of taking macros of salad vegetables and at lunch the light is better ? Hmmmm.
Anyway, I am loving working my way through some of the many salads in my many cookbooks at the moment and feeling a bit virtuous for it (it sure beats the marmite sandwich and crisps I used to eat with Boy Lacer). Today’s lunch was Chinatown salad from Nigella’s Kitchen (yep, in case you hadn’t guessed I am still menu planning from that book). I had to miss out a few ingredients; no spring onions as they were a bit manky and I had a sudden attack of nerves about eating raw beansprouts, I know you can but you have to be careful don’t you? I think I’d be happier eating raw beanspouts I’d sprouted myself. Anyway, even without those two things the salad (which was iceberg (again), red pepper, chicken and peanuts in a soy sauce, lime, chilli, ginger and sesame oil dressing) was pretty nice but not as nice as the chicken and bacon salad from yesterday, but it made a nice change.
