I have been eating a lot of salads lately and I am enjoying them very much. I like the fact that you can assemble whatever you like and what’s important (whatever you have on your fridge). This salad in particular is one of my favourite as it has simple but very healthy ingredients in it. To make it I used 2 boiled beetroot (full of vitamins and minerals, low in fat and full of antioxidants), green beans (full of vitamin K), fresh spinach (important for skin and hair, provides minerals,protein, iron) and feta cheese ( good for your bones as a good source of calcium).
For the dressing: I used good organic Olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice and salt mixed them all together in a small cup until they are mixed well and then pour it over the salad (this way the flavour will mix very well together).
I usually like having salads with fish or meat or simply have it with some good bread, it really depends upon how hungry (and in the mood of cooking)I am. Many people find salads to be not very “flattering” but I think they are interesting because everyone can use whatever ingredient he/she likes, personalize and be brave with the flavours.
Please tell me what is your favourite salad or any special ingredients you put in it, I am very curious to know! 🙂
