Easy summer salads are way to go, now that winter blues are fading into distance and salad days are here. The best salads are light, bright and easy to prepare.
After all who wants to spend hours slaving away in kitchen when friends are round for lunch, garden is in bloom and wine is chilled and ready to pour. But before you start to cook you save a lot of energy by buying right ingredients for a simple salad. That way you donít need heavy bottled sauces and dressings to make a great flavor
Do you really want to take a beautiful crisp summer salad and soak it in a mixture of fat, sugar, salt and chemicals? If you start off with great food and donít do too much to it you donít need all these strong tastes as you still have great food.
All you need is to combine it well so that flavors work together, have a nice crunchy texture and add a little light dressing to set it all off, and let taste buds do rest Freshness is, as in all cooking, way to a good salad. Donít take what supermarkets give you. Although itís easier to pick up ready packed tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, bell peppers etc.
To make sure you get best, take a minute or two and pick over vegetables, choose what is firm ripe and ready to use. The same of course applies with meat and fish. There is a reason why supermarkets prepackage, and itís not always convenience. So choose well, cook quickly and simply and your friends wonít have finished wine by time you get there!
