For the month of January, I am aiming to eat more salads. Resolutions are something I’m always reluctant to make, especially for a whole year. But one month at a time seems attainable. In my holiday baking frenzy, I am afraid that salads were not a frequent part of our family meals, except for a quick plate of sliced cucumbers and tomatoes. So every Saturday over the next four weeks I plan to share a new salad recipe.
To kick off the salad theme, I thought I would take a look back at some of my favourite healthy salads here on Swirls and Spice. Interestingly, none of the salad recipes feature lettuce. Other types of salads hold more appeal I suppose; and there are so many other green vegetables that make a great salad base, like asparagus, cabbage, and my favourite–cucumbers!
So tell me, what’s your favourite salad ingredient? Each week on Facebook, I’ll be inviting folks to discuss which salad(s) they are planning to make in the coming week! Join us there too! Here’s to a happy, healthy new year!
