I am not the most healthy of eaters as you can probably see from the stuff that I cook from time to time. But there are times when a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do. And there is nothing more self fulfilling than to make your own salad for lunch.
For me, I would prefer being served a salad as opposed to packing one for lunch. And for a good variety of reasons as well. Packing means by the time you eat, it is probably whilting away and soggy. But to not drizzle it with dressing would not be such a great idea also.
Everything tastes just so raw.
So add in moderation. I could also opt to add in a separate container or buy a salad box with a separate compartment for dressing. Blah. I go for comvenience and it has to be fast. I can’t take my time to make a gourmet salad. It is just too troublesome.
Plus I am terribly lazy and we all know there is no cure for laziness.
So I have decided to just make do with one disposable container and learn to enjoy soggy salad.
Mesclun Mix (probably cheaper if you buy from the wet market grocer)
Cherry Tomatoes (any kind will do)
Strawberries (I got the Australian ones as they were sweeter, Korean ones look too beautiful to eat.)
Bell Peppers (I got three colours, red, green and yellow)
Hard Boiled Egg (Boil an egg until it is hard boiled)
Salt & Pepper (nuffsaid, just to add to the taste)
1. Is there really a method to make a raw salad? Just mix everything into a metal bowl and mix it all up. And serve.
