New Salad

Thursday, February 24, 2011

I was going to have pasta for dinner tonight, but I needed my parmesan cheese to go with it and as I have run out and hubby had the car I went across the road to the fruit shop. My favourite fruit shop ever - they also have pastas, legumes and cheeses which is what I was after. They did have the parmesan, but unfortunately is was already grated and I just can't eat it like that. I don't know what it is, but the only parmesan I can eat is if I grate it myself - it's just some weird mental thing of mine, like the peaches. I love peaches but can't eat fresh ones because of the fuzz. Come to think of it, I have a few mental food things like that, I suppose that's why my friends always tell me I am "fussy" when it comes to food.

Anyway, when I couldn't get the parmesan I wanted I went for a feta cheese instead and decided to make a salad instead. Taking a leaf (or post) out of Bitch Cakes and Peanut Butter Fingers blogs, tonight I decided to capture my salad on film, this is something I don't normally do, but I come across a few blogs who always photograph their food and for some reason I find it interesting so I thought I would give it a go!!

The above picture is of my cutting board. I love my cow cutting board, it's the only one I use and I will be very upset when she has to retire.
Next is a picture of my salad ingredients :

Bean sprouts, mixed salad greens, cucumber, carrot, red capsicum and feta cheese.

After washing my salad greens,

I put them in a big salad bowl and added the sprouts, carrot, cucumber and capsicum.

I gave my salad a good mix,

Lastly I added my feta and mixed again.

The salad was nice, light, refreshing and enjoyable, but next time I think I may add some basil and pine nuts as well, just for a bit more flavour.
