With the holidays fast approaching, it's important for me to remember to eat healthy meals.
There is usually so much "junk" available that fruits and veggies can easily take a back seat.
One present I plan to give myself this holiday season is to eat lots of salad. There are so many hundreds of yummy kinds that one certainly does not have to feel deprived.
While traveling last month, I ate salad a lot. Roasted beet salad (shown above) sounded intriguing to me and, quite honestly, it tasted absolutely delicious. Roasting the beets made them sweet. The salad also had pistachios and chevre (goat cheese) mousse. This salad could easily be duplicated at home.
A Cobb salad had lots of chopped tomatoes, onions, bacon bits, green onions, chopped chicken and avocado, chopped hard boiled eggs. It came with thick and yummy blue cheese dressing. Yumma dum dum!
Just this past Thanksgiving, one of my sisters brought her signature chopped green salad to the meal. It really made the feast extra special. She even made the radishes look lovely by cutting them in zig zag fashion. With homemade balsalmic dressing, the salad became as popular as ol' Tom turkey, himself. She served chopped onions on the side, since not everyone indulges in them.
