Every Day

Sometimes I step away from the old tried and true recipes and try new foods for dinner. Chickpea and cauliflower curry was one adventure that we will have again. But there are some things that never change at dinnertime.

At the top, ingredients for the dish at the bottom.

Every day I make my husband a salad for dinner:

  • It begins with lettuce, It might be : red leaf or green leaf or romaine or arugula or spinach, but never iceberg.
  • Now the add-ons: shredded carrots, radish, celery, red pepper, olives (sometimes black, sometimes green), green onion,Β  avocado, feta, last of all, roasted sunflower seeds, but never tomatoes.
  • Olive oil and balsamic vinegar dress the salad, but never bottled dressing.

Every day this salad is prepared. Occasionally I will have one too. If I don’t have salad, I have a small bowl of fresh fruit. The bowl might be filled with: strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, watermelon, honeydew, pineapple, or peaches from my backyard tree. Or perhaps a combination of two of the fruits. Every day salad for one and fruit for another are part of our dinner.

What do you have every day?

    Mmmmmm! I wish you were making my dinner! That salad! YUMMMMMM! Not so sure about cauliflower curry though– cauliflower is a big thing in Weightwatchers, and I have never really liked it. I keep telling myself I should go back and try it again, but I haven’t.

    I always read your food pictures as an invitation to come over and eat with you. I wonder if all your readers think this? I don’t think I eat any one thing every day…you have me pondering….

  3. Just printed out the recipe for the soup. My husband would love it if I made a salad like that for him every day. I can’t think of anything that we have every day. Always happy to see one of your food posts.

  4. Ok, so when can Henry (pardon, HRH) and I come eat at your house? The salads look FABULOUS. I’ve just had lunch and my mouth still waters looking at these and reading the descriptions. And here’s why risk-taking pays off!

  5. Healthy and delicious eating. Part of a good meal is presentation and this salad has it. It is fun to step away from the tried and true because who knows, you just might find a new favorite.

  6. I would love for someone to make me a salad every day at dinner time. Your description of your husband’s salad is mouth watering. Coffee is my every day item and while me husband does not indulge, he always makes my cup for the road (and puts all my junk in my car) before I head off to school.

    Such a healthy slice today! Especially after I just had a breakfast of French toast and bacon! The “but never…” is a great idea for a slice!

  8. Ok, I am loving the ease implied by that chickpea and cauliflower curry picture. It’s funny how we all seem to have default foods. “the big salad” is one that my husband and I have-and way too much pasta! I’m going to try this recipe…thanks!

    • Although there were a lot of ingredients, it came together quickly and easily. We liked it, but next time I will sprinkle some red peppers to give it a little heat.
