Number 1: I always add beans (for protein) of some type, a little cheese, and nuts for crunch. The crunch-factor of salad is Very Important to me, to the annoyance of my husband. This one had: mixed salad leaves, half a chopped carrot, about 9 chopped raw almonds, 20g feta cheese, 1/3 tin of butter beans. Juice of half a small lemon, drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, ground sea salt and black pepper.
Number 2: Eeek! No more chickpeas, borlotti-, butter- or red kidney beans in the cupboard! So I used a slice of bauernbrot (german farmer's loaf - half-rye) chopped and drizzled with olive oil. Added a chopped apple, almonds, and blue cheese this time around. My goodness, the bits of bread look humungus in my picture! Yummy yum yum. I could live on salad all year!
