Pseudo-Salad Delight


When you think of salad what do you think?  Lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers with a thick helping of dressing to wash it down? 

Well, not this salad, my friends.  Not this salad.

This salad from Clean Food by Terry Walters had endive, watercress, radicchio, celery, cherry tomatoes, asparagus, avocado, red onion, and orange pepper and was drizzled with a homemade poppy seed vinaigrette.   

I will never think of salad as just lettuce, tomatoes and cucumbers again!  This one was chock full of veggies and a variety of flavors from spicy to peppery to sweet and tangy.  It had texture from the creamy avocado to the crunch celery.  Each bite was a delectable delight of veggie fusion flavor.

What is your favorite pseudo-salad combination???

  1. Wow that salad sounds amazing! So many people think salads have to be boring, but they can easily be the exact opposite!!!

    In the summer we love tomatoes, watermelon, red onions, a dash of sea salt, a dash of pepper, a dash of sugar, olive oil, red wine vinegar, mix of herbs (dill, basil, mint), sometimes I add toasted almonds and feta…it is delish!

  3. This looks lovely! So fresh and bright, my mouth is watering now. I love salads, but my favorite combination always contains avocados, chickpeas, cucumbers, spinach, olives, bacos (yep, they are vegan!) carrots, bell peppers, red onions, and whatever else I have on hand. And my favorite dressing is to mix tahini with spicy mustard and olive oil. YUMMM!
