Salad Days

The day after I got back from Sydney, Andy got back from his field trip, so the past week has been spent lounging at home, running errands around town, but mostly taking a holiday from uni. But it's also been a bit hot (especially compared to Sydney). And, given that Andy has spent the last two months eating food that gets shipped to the island on a barge, fresh veggies have been a big part of our recent menu.

First up, a pile of salad featuring lettuce, basil, tomato, cucumber, and lightly sauteed carrots, onion and zucchini, topped with a Fry's vegan chicken schnitzel. The dressing on the salad was my favourite sunflower butter and miso combination, and it was so morish. Served with a giant piece of bruschetta, this was a light but very filling and satisfying dinner.

We love mexican-inspired food, so even though it isn't authentic, this Mexican-ish salad was super yummy. Lettuce, the crunchy bits from a wombok, some spinach from the garden, capsicum, lightly sauteed carrots, zucchini and onion, topped with a spicy and tomatoey refried beans and a fried green tomato salsa. Yum!

And finally, Asian Cole Slaw--wombok, grated carrot and grated sweet potato with a sesame oil and five spice dressing. Served with broccoli with peanut sauce, and Andy's invention of rice croquettes. This whole dinner was delicious.

Everything looks so colorful and tasty - reminds me I've been neglecting fresh veggies lately too, which I'll blame on winter. All the salads look terrific, especially the Mexican one.

Yum, they all look great. I am loving salad at the moment. We are eating most nights and planning on a salad Xmas lunch.

You really can't beat salad. The heat here is making anything else seem like too much effort. I think it's going to be a Christmas filled with salad this year (although it always seems to rain on Christmas day...maybe this year will be a first?).

Salad based dinners are fantastic in the hot days of summer.

Oh wow, is the grated sweet potato raw? I would never have thought of doing that! Raw beetroot, yes, but raw sweet potato? I'm impressed!
