I am a cookbook hound, I will peruse through anything I can get my hands on. If I really like the book, I will read it thoroughly and go through every single recipe. I particularly love French cooking; it’s simplicity at the very finest. Simplicity is a sign of perfection, I learned that from my figure skating days – the less complicated something is the better it is.
You know that I love my salads but I have now discovered A Bed of Greens. The bed can be torn leaf lettuces or mesclun, which is beautiful – or whatever you prefer. I like to toss mine with a little olive oil and salt and pepper to begin with. Last night I made an amazing salad starting with greens, tomatoes, chopped bacon, garbanzo beans, cheddar cheese sliced very thin and sauteed mushrooms.
So basically, anything warm can be served on top of a bed of greens; potatoes, roasted vegetables, meats, melted cheese on toast…the possibilities are endless. Dream up something good!!!
