When we came back home from the Christmas holidays we were craving salad and vegetables. So, for the past week I've been making a lot of what we call "Hippie Salads". I think these taste even better knowing that you can create something at home that you'd pay $10 for at Whole Foods.
It's really just a "whatever's in the fridge" salad. Here's what mine included today:
steamed Chinese cabbage and broccoli
a handful of raisins
1/4 of a yam cut into cubes
a few cubes of avocado
a sprinkling of goat cheese
For the dressing, I just mixed together some olive oil, red wine vinaigrette, and mango chutney.
Other versions have included steamed kale (which I prefer over the cabbage, but we're out of kale), lentils, and chickpeas.
All told, this made for a happy and colourful lunch!
