Ultimate Salad

Obviously it’s so warm we’re all only eating salads at home and that. Wondered what peoples favourite homemade salads are as i’ve hit a bit of a wall, #creatively.

Open to ideas, so long as they don’t include fennel, which obviously tastes like bigfoot’s cock. Lettuce, onion and sweetcorn are no-no’s for me as well, not wasting my life trying to get them on my fork, and fuck radishes.

My only real staples are beetroot, rainbow tomatoes or sometimes beef tomatoes, chunky spring onions, feta cheese, sweet potato, rocket, bit of avocado.

I’ll take it for granted we all opt for a bit of white crusty bread. Not much of a dressings man. Don’t really like the taste of olive oil no matter the quality, so normally get the garlic one. Plenty of black pepper.

Shoot…

Not an expert but find pomegranate works well in a salad, for me

This is really nice. Leave out the radishes if you’re not a fan.

Think you’ve typed pineapple instead of a vegetable there, bud…

Sounds good. Balsamic overpowers everything for me, but otherwise perfick. Might try it tomorrow.

I generally stagger the roasting. Peppers and onions in first (big chunks cut down when cooked) then add courgette then mushrooms, otherwise you get a soggy mess.

Big fan of mozzarella and basil together, throw a few toms and avo in there and baby you got a salad going.

Romaine lettuce, on the vine cherry toms, cucumber, spring onion, a sort of pepper (sweet pointed or red bell), maybe a radish or 2. Paired with some sort of protein and carbs (normally chicken or sea bass and always cous cous).

Me nan used to do a corn beef salad with brown rice (sounds grim, is lovely). We sometimes do an easy salad (lettuce, toms, pepper, cucumber, with cold baked beans, hard boiled egg, sliced ham, grated cheddar and coleslaw). Lovely.

Grilled halloumi, lemon, olives pomegranate and some kind of leaf

Never heard of this but Googled it & found this recipe, this looks sick:

That’s fine. More for me

regularly have a side salad of lettuce, onion and tomato with a meal, but if its a meal by itself, then spinach, warm goats cheese, walnut, pear and maybe a few slices of avocado :muscle:

Oof!

Not really a rabbit food fan tbh. Lettuce and all that can get in the bin.

My ‘salad’ is usually something involving a bit of pasta or noodles and some veg, bit of meat or halloumi or something.

Chocolate

Halloumi
Avocado
Quinoa

(Sorry for being a stereotypical millennial! :laughing:)

I also quite like couscous with a dressing made from olive oil, garlic, chilli and lime juice.
