The salad streak continues

Disclaimer: I am not, in any way, shape or form claiming to eat particularly healthily :)

I don't know what's got into me, but I'm really enjoying eating salad with my dinners!

I've never been a big salad fan, and I don't really rate cold food much at all - if at all possible I will eat three hot meals a day. However, after the surviving the flu (I must have had man-flu as I'm still talking about it!) I started experimenting more. Part of my new-found enjoyment has come in the form of balsamic vinegar - what a genius salad dressing! Beyond that, I don't know where it's coming from but it makes me feel awfully healthy! I've even been trying out different ingredients such as finely chopped mange tout for a bit of crunch...

I eat a ginormous salad almost every day for lunch, rain or shine, hot or cold... I put whatever is in my fridge into them.

I have been using a white balsamic vinegar sometimes... it is milder in flavor and nice when that dark color isn't great.

But dark balsamic is so nice... it it mixes nicely with a bit of brown sugar as a marinade for fresh strawberries... oh yum, I have some... better go do it.
