Salad Nirvana … day 1 [364 to go]

Day one - BBQ Coleslaw 101

Positive news .. I actually did it, tonight I had my first salad! I wasn’t going to, I didn’t give myself much time to organise a puruse of gourmet literacy to find the perfect innugural salad, nor did I factor in a brief but important stop en route home to the markets .. so tonight’s great vegetable caper was a little bit limp, possibly bland, definately not the finest hour in the kitchen … but a salad non the less – with the minimum three vegetables. Welcome, the traditional aussie bbq coleslaw [red cabbage, white cabbage, carrot dressed with mayonaise and a dash of honey]. Reference: aPPLe.FLUff [not my finest hour]. BUT very easily topped!! And the gauntlet is thrown! 

PS: I am very exicted about Little Fire’s pledge to join me in sustenance through salad. LF … if in a moment of enjoying food porn you find a good looking salad – please feel free to pay it forward – there are only so many salads gracing my library.

I have chosen tomorrow’s delectable dish [two actually, so I can have the minimum three vegetables] … Jaime Oliver’s evolution cucumber salad & evolution carrot salad ahh yes, I will be accepting herbs as a vegetable ingredient for this one] – should be perfect with the chicken tikka marsala Mmm Mmm Mmmm ref: Jaime’s Ministry of Food.

PPS: I’m not going to preview my salad future always, I just wanted you to see that I have at least done my homework for tomorrows feast …
