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.
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, 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?
