Love some salads. Cabbage, lettuce and whatever else you have in the fridge. Make your own dressing or dump on some always cheap and delicious Kens Steak House dressing. They're are no rules. Dried Blueberries from Washington State with goatcheese and cranberries. Put it in a bowl and go to town. I like them big, but small is fine sometimes... Why are salad plates so small and those little forks? WTF?

Kids always love chick peas....

Salad is not food; salad is what food eats.

That being said, I had a great one today at Crazy Horse in Nevada City after riding Pioneer/Miners into town, followed by pork street tacos. Too bad everyone in that town is a tweeker or close to being one.

Olive oil, lemon juice, pepper, kosher salt, spinach, fresh chopped dill, thinly sliced radishes and cucumber, shallots, pecans, canned smoked salmon. Whisk oil, lemon, pepper and salt, toss ingredients. Excellent.

I've been into simple (lazy) but tasty salads lately:

1. Green leaf lettuce and spinach, Marcona almonds, olive oil

2. Green leaf lettuce with kalamata olives with a little bit of the liquid from the jar over the lettuce.

Cherry peppers stuffed with Prosciutto and Gorgonzola. Hydroponic Chard and hydroponic chopped grape tomatoes, Shallots, green olives, and cubed Hot Soppreseto, Drenched in Greek Olive oil and Rice wine and Sea Salt. Almonds thrown in for good measure. I will be doing all my future gardening indoors.

Fungus has taken root in our Garden. Power bill has been brutal also. The Solar panel project went nowhere. City made us get a engineer who fucked us over. Invasive law enforcement activity has discouraged our volunteer help. New kitchen makes pickles. Very smelly operation. Other tenants are complaining. Inspector came by and said I needed to enclose all the propane and flammable liquid tanks. I told him to pound salt as the tanks aren't mine.

A salad is not a real salad without bacon.
This salad proves you wrong.
Thai style warm lamb salad..... So so good!


stuffs to mangle

6 Limes
2tsp demerara sugar
1 red chilli finely chopped (remove seeds if you prefer it not so hot)
half teaspoon fish sauce
half teaspoon Tamari
1 tablespoon avocado or olive oil (I prefer avocado for this recipe)
400grm Lamb fillets cut into 1cm strips
1 small red onion, finely sliced
50g fresh Coriander (Cilantro) chopped
25 fresh mint chopped
75g roasted peanuts chopped
200g Mesclun salad leaves


How to mangle

To make the dressing grate the zest of 3 limes and squeeze the juice from all the limes.
Add the sugar, chilli, fish sauce and Tamari.
Stir till the sugar has dissolved.

Sear the Lamb strips on the BBQ grill, but don't overcook beyond rare.
Remove from the heat and rest for 2 mins or so.

Slice the lamb strips thinly and add to the Mesclun, Red Onion, peanuts, Herbs.
Toss well and pour over the dressing.

Makes about 6 servings...... Or in my case it serves ME, everyone else can gfked! I can't stop eating it cos it's so good!

I hate fish and soy sauce which makes pretty much every thai dish uneatable for me...
This meant eating at subway and irish pubs for a month when i was in Thailand which was pretty annoying.

Other then that it looks like a killer salad and i think i might give it a go without the sauce!

That is a lot of drama for salad
