I‘m a salad lover who is passionate about vegetables and the flavours, the colours and simple combinations that you can prepare with wonderful fresh produce.
As a founding member, I’m actively involved in our Love my Salad ‘project’ which is supported by Rijk Zwaan, the company I’ve worked with for over 20 years providing vegetable seeds to professional growers.
Who says you can't win friends with salad
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.
Nature has provided us with an amazing variety of vegetables and fruits, each with their own vibrant colour, unique flavours and built-in nutritional packages.
That's the essence of 'Love my Salad' and the motivation to start this project. To create, share and enjoy fresh produce with family and friends.
Importantly, it‘s also about raising the 'intrinsic value' and respect we place on vegetables within our daily lives.
