Do you have a dish that never leaves your table? I mean a dish which you cook for every mealtime. I have one, which is a side dish for most people, but for me it becomes main course sometimes. I am about salads now. My mother always told me about the use of vegetables and salads of them. Our family always had it for lunch and dinner and our party tables were covered with many dishes of various salads. This way I got a habit and healthy passion to them.My own family now follows that tradition and neither my husband, nor my child protest against salads.
I always cook some meat or fish as main course, but mixed and seasoned vegetables are always on the table or in the fridge. Growing my daughter, tried making salads herself because it is the easiest thing in cooking – cut, mix and season. Only three elements, but you can endlessly use your imagination to create something new and delicious.
I was very glad to find my daughter making a new salad for my birthday party. She found it here. It is a salad of cucumber, corn, basil and chive. The ingredients are very simple, aren’t they? But the taste was so rich that I refused to have any meat that we had on the table. It happens to me sometimes – I’ve told you already. So, now I have a recipe of one more yummy salad and recommend you cooking it even if you are not such a fan of them as I am.
