The Best Salad Ever
This is a picture of me (It’s flattering, I know. Give me a break–I was high on some really fantastic salad) in a cafe in Slovenia in 2009 eating God’s gift to salads. On a rainy day in Ljubljana, Seth and I discovered this awesome little tea room/cafe. We ordered lunch and to my surprise, I happened to order a meal that would change my life: a “Rocket Salad,” which I knew was arugula, and I love arugula.
I know this is random, but I was reminded of it last night as we picked our first arugula from our garden for dinner. Because of this fantasy feast, my go-to salad is now some combination of the following: arugula, avocado, parmesan cheese, artichoke hearts, red pepper, chicken, cilantro, blue cheese, sun-dried tomato, topped with olive oil and red wine vinegar. I am not the kind of person who pretends that something healthy tastes really good when it actually does not, but I promise this is. Mmmmmmm…killer. I still turn to Seth now and then and request that he order it for me by long distance delivery. Better yet, we could always go back for a visit:)
PS- If you ever have a chance to go to Slovenia, GO! It’s fantastic. Get this salad for me too.
