There are times when your body simply needs greens. On those occasions, I pull together a “Go Green” salad, which entails hunting down all of the green ingredients from the refrigerator and pantry. Now that spring is coming I seem to be turning to this salad again and again.
Another newish practice is creating a mix of cooked and raw vegetables in my salads. I was recently inspired by Koula Barydakis’ Cretan salad recipe which incorporates cooked zucchini in the salad. This is also reminiscent of many fine Nicoise salad recipes.
You can make my exact salad or make your own version by hunting down delicious and healthy green ingredients on hand to make your perfect salad. Also, feel free to toss in some feta or other cheese and dried fruit such as currants or raisins.
