Create that ‘taste kaleidoscope’ effect


via Instagram
I don’t regularly have salad as a ‘meal’ but after the extravagance of far too many Christmas meals, it’s time to try to be a bit healthier. So, putting the effort in to create that ‘taste kaleidoscope’ effect which I love in my other dishes which seems to be generated by pairing sweet vs sour elements.

Lettuce leaves
Grated carrot
Baby tomatoes
Celery
Cucumber
Red onion

I’d love to be throwing in some grated cheddar cheese or fried bacon pieces (or both!) for that ‘fat’ kick but instead, made a simple salad dressing of:

2 tbs olive oil
1 tbs honey
1/2 tbs balsamic vinegar
1/4 tbs Dijon mustard
Grated fresh ginger

The fresh ginger gives a nice exotic element to the dressing and you can replace mustard with lime juice for even more of an Asian vibe to your salad. . . . . . . .
