Eat More Salad

Eat more Salad with your dinner meal.

While comfort food kept many of us afloat during self-isolation, quarantine kilos are real. For real. Salad is the answer. 

But not the one you packed for your office lunch over and over. Or that same salad you make for a bbq. I have 3 great salads for the dinner table to go with whatever you are making that night. And the leftover can be an absolute game changer.

Learn how to build better, more interesting salads with these tips and recipes.

“Treat salads like a story”.  Decide where you want the story to take you, and then guide your ingredients to the same place. For example, if I’m looking to create a quinoa & roast veggie salad (like one of the 3 in my video of salads) inspired by black quinoa and any random veggie that’s in the bottom of my fridge, I will use roast the veggies off seasoned well and allow them to sit before tossing the rest of the ingredients in makes for a better tasting story.

One of the most important details about salad making is creating layers of flavour with every ingredient, so remember to season your vegetables and grains well. And remember, most salads (apart from ‘chilled’ ones) are best eaten at room temperature – cold salads tend to be tasteless, as the temperature kills most of the flavours.”

I am thinking of giving our cooking stove a break. Give you time to clean it up a little bit to show it some love and gratitude for helping us serve wonderful meals to our families and friends.

This dish is a beauty. Picture this… Winter sun, family & mates. On the veranda or around the fire…  A couple of beers, a nice organic red, kombucha, or whatever floats ya boat. Dipping some corn chips into this well-rounded salad.

Bottom Of The Fridge No Rules Roast Veggies Salad

The quick and easy roast veggie salad and balsamic glaze recipe are so damn tasty. What makes this so epic is the crunch of the roasted seeds and the sweetness of the balsamic glaze that brings it together.

Salads can be your go-to dinner when you are having a long week and you do not feel like cooking. It’s also a big help to lose those additional lockdown weights you’ve packed!
