Healthy Salads

Even if I have in my possession a cookbook called 100+ types of salads, I find myself going into a salad rut, i.e., I often make the same kinds of salads, again and again. So I told myself that from now on, I’ll make an effort to seek inspiration from my salad book. I can’t possibly post the same kind of salad on this blog every time I make one! So that shall be my incentive hehe.

As the temperature goes up, my salad cravings will go up as well, so I’m hoping to try at least 30 out of the 100+!

Salad No. 1

Ingredients:
Mixed greens
Colorful coleslaw (Green cabbage, Red cabbage, Carrots)
Zucchini
Cucumber
White Mushrooms
Tomatoes
Corn
Onions
Sunflower seeds

Salad No. 2

Ingredients:
Lettuce
Asparagus
Cherry tomatoes
Boiled egg
Grilled salmon filet
Capers

Salad No. 3

Ingredients:
Green leaves
Tomatoes
Cucumber
Crab meat (Goberge)
Brown toast
Garlic butter

I used Balsamic Vinaigrette for all 3 salads:
Salt & Pepper
Olive oil
Balsamic Vinegar

Instructions: Just chop everything, put everything in a bowl, add the dressing, mix and toss and serve.

P.s. To get out of my rut, I will try other salad dressings in the future! 🙂

Cheese Sandwich with Veggies

Hey guys! I hope you’ve spent a great Easter weekend! I was out of town visiting family, so I haven’t been cooking for the past few days. I’ve been going to holiday gatherings and there were of course lots of food! So after I came back, I told myself that I’m going to eat very simple and light this week — lots of veggies, salads and soups.

This is an easy cheese sandwich I like to make, which is absolutely yummy!
