An interesting salad

This recipe was a re definition of a salad.

Close  to the original recipe,  very filling for a salad that I had about 1/2 of the total amount.

Nuts are said to be a superfood, but I won’t profess about what you (should) eat,  the decision is up to you.

Quinoa salad  from Mrs. Twinkle a WordPress blog .

Now I’m open to a lot of grains, bread, couscous, barley, so this looked like an interesting combination. Now those of you either that have a nut allergy or turned off by a meal with no meat, yes this recipe could be modified from the original but I think that would lose something in the translation.

Being used to the usual greens and tomato type salad, with an oil and vinegar type dressing,  this is a pleasant diversion. Little if any modification to the recipe. Other than sesame oil double and skip the olive oil in the dressing, and some chopped ginger added to the main mix, ( I would taste and bring up the level of ginger in the dressing). The crunch of the red cabbage and the nuttiness of the dressing, on a bed of grains is satifiying. 


 I use double black soy sauce for the dressing. Melt the peanut butter and honey in a microwave safe bowl for about 30 seconds. Stir and finish the dressing and adjust to taste.


Assembled

I resisted to add any heat to this recipe!

The big salad….

supposedly spring is on the way… In the doldrums of winter it doesn’t seem possible to have a fresh green salad . 

Most likely it would have to be hot house or imported ingredients from some tropical land . I guess in the coldness of winter , fresh spring produce seems out of place till the earth warms.

But now the promise of lettuce, greens and the like of juicy red tomatoes, leads me to the fact that a salad is in the works.

Does a salad for a meal rank right up there with quiche  ?  Ya know , a manly meal that doesn’t  have at least 3/4 lbs of blood red meat that dwarfs the plate?  Well… For now yeah….

A container of mixed greens from the supercenter and a couple of vine tomatoes. I wavered between these or the grape tomatoes, knowing by fact the the pictured perfect vine tomatos are raised for their aesthetic   appeal, rather than their flavour, as one who has tasted fresh garden tomatoes can attest to. 

None the less the basic ingredients are in place , a hard boiled egg would be added and of course , salad dressing, here no (sexist remark redacted) vinegarette. Sort of a creamy Russian, Thousand Island variety would suffice. Being a mixture of ketchup, mayonnaise , horseradish, and green relish, yes , with a hot pepper addition.

Hmmmmm, something missing, the crouton , a major building block of the big salad , important as the electron , proton and the neutron. 

Diced fresh bread sautéed in butter with minced garlic and then browned in a fry pan would add to the topping with the addition and a “bird seed” mixture. THAT’LL DO IT ! Onions are a required staple of most recipes!

   

            

 

 Remember the big salad from Seinfeld ?
