There’s something about Spring that makes me want to pack as much green in to my dinner as possible, a fresh meal to compliment the fresh air. This is potentially borderline obsessive compulsive green but as the great Ron Swanson once said, “never half-ass two things, whole-ass one thing” I don’t want to say this is a whole-ass green salad because I feel like that doesn’t have quite the right ring to it, but I’m sure you get my drift.
Chicory is a real good’un, it reduces inflammation in the body, supports digestion and speeds up your metabolism – its also full of antioxidants. You’ve also got some cucumber in there with a nice high water content, my loyal friend avocado, and a pear makes a curveball appearance. This one’s really good for you, if you’re going hardcore detox vibe you can skip the dressing, but I drizzled it with mustard vinaigrette just after taking the picture.
1/2 pear, sliced with a peeler (any kind, I don’t even know what kind I used)
1/2 avocado, cut in to chunks
1 spring onion, sliced finely
1/4 cucumber, sliced
1 chicory heart (is that what its called?)
- I don’t need to tell you how to make a salad, just prepare all the green stuff as detailed above and put it in a bowl.
This is your track recommendation cause I only just found out this song existed and it’s been the soundtrack to my spreadsheet city at work lately, can’t stop won’t stop.
