After a week of vacation, I always come home with (albeit brief) renewed energy and new ideas. I was looking for some salad inspiration after returning from a great week of birdwatching and kayaking in Florida. The weather at home is still not really even close to spring like…but I need some roughage and colour in my daily diet.
I tried to remember what I had seen in recipes for bowls – all the parts nicely partitioned in a bowl – waiting to be mixed up into a great salad.
I started with a pile of brown rice, added sweet corn I had frozen last season, a grated carrot and a chopped English cucumber. I felt healthy just looking at it! I added in some feta and dressing and it made a great kickstart to getting more of my 5 to 10 servings of fruit and vegetables every day.
