Fusion Salad :)

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 !
