Today I am cheating big time: there was no salad for lunch as we went out to enjoy Thai food al fresco (a hot and spicy vegetable soup and a yellow curry with beef).
And it is not my Greek salad either but a wonderful salad my daughter prepared last night for dinner.
Let me try to put it together:
¼ Red beet raw, shaved in julienne
½ Avocado in slices
a handful of mushrooms in slices
a handful of cherry tomatoes quartered
1/3 cucumber in slices
1 spring onion
1 clove garlic
Feta finely diced
Light balsamic vinegar
Salt + pepper
I always use a ratio of 1/3 lemon and/or vinegar to 2/3 oil/cream.
Decorate with mint leaves and serve bread with it.
The Greek Salad
We opened one of the bottles we found in the wine cellar of my aunt but were not too happy with it and stayed with the ice tea.
