Summer Salad
(What, were you expecting a Playboy bunny sporting edible underwear?)

Food Porn

You will need:

Mixed Baby Greens (triple washed and ready to eat…because I’m OCD like that)
White Onion, sliced
Strawberries, quartered long-ways
Cucumbers, sliced and quartered
Orange Bell Pepper, chopped or sliced or ringed or diced or whatever
Chives, chopped into perfectly rounded little circular bits
Dried Cranberries, preferably organic (NOT Craisins ~ there is a difference, yo)
Glazed Walnuts
Feta cheese, crumbled

Directions:

  1. Wash your hands.
  2. Throw the greens on a plate or in a bowl or whatever.
  3. Cut onion, strawberries, cucumbers (optional), and bell pepper.  Throw on top of greens.  Toss on the chives.
  4. Wash hands (or just rinse them) again, if you feel they have become “icky.”
  5. Sprinkle a handful of dried cranberries and a smidgeon of glazed walnuts over the top.
  6. Dump feta over everything.
  7. Top with raspberry-walnut vinaigrette salad dressing.  (Poppyseed dressing works too if you’re into…uhmmm…creamy…stuff.)
  8. Stir or shake or mix or…  Toss.  Yeah, that’s it.  Toss.
  9. Fork it!  Heh.
  10. Share if you must.

Recommended drink(s):  Ice water (with a wedge of lemon), Organic iced oolong tea with peach, or chilled Semillon white wine (brand of choice:  Chateau Ste Michelle).

ENJOY!

    I laughed a hearty laugh when I read this. Because this is almost exactly the salad that Katie has made for lunch every single day for the last five years. Except she uses red onion.

    A weird thing about Katie. She can have the same food for breakfast lunch and dinner for the rest of her life and it’s actually a relief for her that she doesn’t have to plan anything different. So if I come home from work and she makes dinner… it is always the exact same dinner and possibly the exact same fork spoon and knife next to the exact same plate on the table.

    And yes… that goes for sex too. If she could put it on a calendar she would, and it would be like replaying the same movie again and again (albeit a really GOOD movie like Princess Bride).

    And she gets freaked out when I say I need to eat different food every day. She’s like, “but whyyyyyyyyy? What’s wrong with what I made?”

    Oops I’ve sort of overshared on your amazing salad story. But my point is actually this: I find it helps me to try different fruits like tiny slices of tangerines, apples, oranges, even grapefruit… and I vary the cheese between feta and goat cheese and parmesan, and it alters the whole landscape for me.

      Inconthievable! 😉

      You’ll be delighted to know that while I do eat a lot of salads (which is mostly due to my personal dietary choices), I also tend to vary their contents quite a bit. And, like you… I find that variations on a theme can be a lot of fun. 😀

    I don’t think I ever went through a picky eater stage. I know that neither of my parents could have been picky eaters, growing up in the Depression cures that real fast. We always had really large gardens too. From 69 on we had a large enough garden that my folks would get one new veggie a year. We’d grow it, try to find out how you’re supposed to eat it, then try it. After my mom died I was the only one living close enough to take the contents of her freezer. I have no idea where she found them, but they were factory packed with freshness dates and everything, and they were the weirdest tv dinners I had ever seen. The most common one {she had several of these} was meatloaf with rutabagas and lima beans. The meatloaf was tolerable, the rutabagas were overcooked but the flavor was okay, the lima beans were bland tasteless lumps that seemed to suck all the moisture out of your mouth. I’m not fond of lima beans. The other dinners had kohlrabi, parsnips, jicama, beets for desert, just a weird mix. I didn’t run into anything I hadn’t ate before, just never in those combinations, or as a frozen meal. I do like Feta cheese on Gyros, but the after effects aren’t real pleasant. I’ve never heard of the wine you mentioned, Semillon white wine. Is it sweet?

    I did go through periods of time when I would eat the same or similar meals. Unlike kanienke’s Katie, I would eat the same things because in my college years I didn’t own a big freezer. You cook it, then you eat on it until it’s gone. I do think that is one bad thing about microwaves, they kill the creativity that goes into creating new hybrid dishes in order to use up leftovers. It happened all the time. Soups were always being recycled into something, mostly casseroles and beef stroganoff. When watching the Japanese Iron Chef or Rachel Ray if my wife and son noticed me paying real close attention they would always say, “Don’t cook that!” I do have to give Rachel credit, she comes up with some really odd different combos that work. It doesn’t hurt that she’s easy on the eyes too.

      Semillon is sort of… Dry, semi-sweet. Not a chardonnay and not a reisling. Sort of in-between. It has some characteristics of a blush, but it’s not one. I’m not a wine connoisseur; I’m not really sure how to describe it. If I was writing a review or something I’d say, “Tasty!”, and just leave it at that. 😉

      My mother was big on “use everything, as many ways as possible”, so growing up, I learned how to utilize leftovers in creative ways. One of my acquaintances is married to a man who is really creative in the kitchen (um, not like that…), and one year after Thanksgiving he made a fantabulous curry soup using the leftover turkey. That was before I stopped eating meat, and I remember it well. It was delicious.

    Carnivore me would eat that. Yes, I would.

    One thing I would possibly do a wee bit differently is a blue cheese rather than feta. Something with a bit of bite to contrast the onions and the fruit. Personal preference. 🙂
