An homage to my salad

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Yes, salad. Not something I normally get excited about. But lately I've been having the most wonderful salads for lunch and I gratefully thank Saint ALDI for the abundance!

ALDI has started carrying organic leafy greens - at least 4 different varieties and mixes so far - and they are SO much more satisfying than the one-note salads I've usually had. Mind you, I had tried the artisanal lettuce bunches before and mixed them with fresh spinach, and they were fine but nothing to write a blog about. This mix is just really pleasant. Hope I don't get tired of this anytime soon. It really makes for a perfect lunch.

    If you ever get a chance to grow your own. Lettuce is so easy, and so tasty.
It is honestly a world of difference between crisp, freshly cut, and what you can find in a store.

    Yum. The leafy green base can make or break a salad for me. Glad you found a good mix. The store near me, Asda (which is owned by Walmart) sells a great kale, baby spinach and pak choi mix which is just perfect. It flys off the shelves though (unsurpisingly) so I don't catch it every week. If only you could stock-buy eh!

    Are you sure they aren't adding anything else to the bag? If so, I WANT some so I too can get excited about a salad again!

    that is nice - i do baby spinach, rocket and lettuce with chopped tomato and cucumber - then a add a little smoked chicken - the smoky flavor with the leaves just go so well and the watery tomato makes me not want to add dressing - yummy
