If you are person who sneers at having salad for lunch.. Look away from this post and move on to the other posts. To all those who are reading further.. This is by far the best salad I have ever made or had.
I like to have a salad for lunch on the days when I am on my own.. With all the packed boxes gone in the morning and I can spend my time in some photography some reading or some tasks which inspire me.
I have to say the inspiration for this salad came from the cranberry salad I had with my friends at “Black door cafe.” Sharing a picture of theirs too.
When I was putting the salad veggies together, I noticed I had some passion fruit too in the fridge. Immediately the enlightened version of me.. Said now that’s the right kind of sweet sour for this load of veggies- cranberry salad with passion fruit seeds to bite through… yummm
Whisking through the vinnegrette I realised I could pair this up again for a brunch probably with spicy rice cakes. Oohhh yumm
Now back to the salad, the tartness from the passion fruit and the sweet honey to creates a balance actually works quite well with the mix of iceberg and butterhead lettuce I have used here. The subtle hint of a great pressed olive oil in the background how’s it a clean eat feel.
Oh!! I love to top the salad with a handful of roasted chickpeas or sunflower seeds….This adds a lot more healthy crunch than the croutons. I do like to add in a bit of pan seared tofu.. When I have some in the fridge.
So there… Fill up your bowl, drizzle the dressing and enjoy the time to yourself. Eat clean, shed all the festive load and just feel fresh and nice to get back to tasks.
If for a brunch party toss in the vinaigrette just before serving… Or leave it on the side.
