Salad is a versatile and healthy meal. It gives me a pyschological lift when I have only salad for my dinner meals. Trying to cover the days when I consume too much meaty stuff :p I like to add fruits to my salad if there are fruits in the fridge. Strawberries give a wonderful color to the salad besides the Vitamin C and flavonoids. Rich in antioxidant too :)
This is a fusion salad that I created for myself. Besides the usual lettuce and tomatoes, I threw in some homemade Gari ( japanese pickled ginger ) and 3/4 cooked soft boiled egg....... east meet west salad :) and with some left overs slices of homemade wheat bread, I cut them into cubes and toast them in the oven as croutons....drizzle balsamic to the croutons and gosh this was a yummy fusion salad. The dressing for this salad is just extra virgin olive oil, mixed dried herbs and a pinch of salt. Easy to prepare and delicious at the same time !
left over homemade wheat bread can be made into croutons...
I love the balsamic vinegar in them.....
this is how I like my 3/4 cooked soft boiled egg to be and the
homemade Gari goes well with the egg :) mmm
the croutons are crunchy and the after taste
of balsamic lingers......add texture and flavors
to the salad....heavenly !
Have a great day !
