Lately I’ve been craving salads all the time. I blame the South Carolina heat – a billion degrees with a trillion percent humidity makes you want to hoard cold wet stuff, food included.
I just had my ol’ standby for lunch, a buffalo BBQ chicken salad…
…but it just didn’t have that same panache it used to. I suspect the bell pepper was underripe, but I let it go without a formal investigation; I did yardwork this morning and needed nutrients fast. My other go-to lately has included blueberries, chicken, low-fat feta cheese, and a raspberry cabernet vinaigrette dressing.
Other than those two, I got no game lately. I need some salad inspirations!! When you make a salad, do you go for a theme or particular cuisine or flavor? Do you just dump everything but the kitchen sink in a bowl? What’s your favorite leafy concoction?
