I love sensational simplicity and the flavours, colours of wonderful fresh produce. A founding member and regular contributor to Love my Salad, I'm based in Newcastle, Australia.
Salads are at their best when prepared with fresh ingredients. Like my favourite tomato salad - tasty tomatoes cut into bite-sized pieces and put on a sharing plate, add some bocconcini, then drizzel with virgin olive oil. Season with a little salt and pepper and serve with fresh basil leaves.
Another memorable example was a delicious starter I enjoyed at a restaurant in Adelaide. It was just an orange. Cut and arranged perfectly on a plate. Soon others were asking "I'll have what he's having." True story!
Nature has provided us with an amazing variety of vegetables and fruits, each with their own vibrant colour, unique flavours and nutritional packages for us to enjoy.
Salad lovers are not afraid to chop. We love to discover new combinations and are willing to challenge the status quo.
That's the essence of 'Love my Salad' and the motivation to start this project. It's about adding colour to your life by sharing the fun, joy and vitality of fresh salad vegetables and importantly, raising the 'intrinsic value' we place on them everday.
