Time simply does not allow for all the food adventures that I often want to squeeze in. This weekend, I more than made up for a lacklustre week in food by fitting in a ten hour (round) road trip, a harvest dinner, and having 12 friends over for brunch. It’s been a blast but by 5.00pm on Sunday I was a little ‘fooded out’.
So, what better way to cap off a three day eating extravaganza than with a light and delightful salad? Just what the doctor ordered:
It’s not really worth posting ingredients and directions to this most simple of salads – simply chop some cucumber, fresh tomatoes, and parsley; slice some red onion (I only had white to hand); add some fresh lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper….and call it done. Serve with crunchy pita chips.
I added olives and some of their juices for a kick along with some chopped bell pepper. You could also add feta cheese, or chick peas to really kick this up a notch. Perfect sunny sunday munching.
