You don’t make friends with salad

Those are remnants of the salad which was tonight’s supper. Summertime is great because there’s so much more fresh produce available at decent prices and I really don’t feel like eating high maintenance, heavy foods…so tossing a bunch of stuff in a bowl makes me very happy.

Salad
1/2 lb. baby spinach
2 cups bean sprouts
1 orange bell pepper, slivered
2 cups snow peas
1 ripe mango, slivered
3 grilled chicken breasts

I just layered all of the above in a glass bowl (because if you’re layering you’d might as well show off how pretty it looks) in the order in which they appear above.

Dressing

3/4 cup yoghurt
1/4 lime juice
3 cloves garlic
handful fresh cilantro

Whiz the cilantro and garlic in a food processor for about a minute until you’ve got a flakey sort of mulch. Add the yoghurt and lime juice and whiz for another minute.

Top your pretty salad with dressing and toasted almonds if you’re thinking you’ll make it through the whole lot. If not, then serve on individual plates and do the topping there.

I figure the dressing would be excellent with the addition of grated fresh ginger but I was seriously too lazy to pull out my rasp tonight.

C’est tout.
