i've been on a salad kick lately (for the past 2 or 3 weeks). i've NEVER been a salad person. it's not that i don't like salad (although i did as a kid) but i just can't be bothered and it never sounds appealing (but i always LOVE any salad that anyone else makes). i've started making my own dressings though and it just makes them taste soooooo much better (and i don't have to read a dozen labels in the supermarket trying to find one that's vegan and sounds good). i made this amazing (and very simple) one with just sesame oil (i'm also loving sesame in any form-- tahini, seeds and oil), soy sauce and a bit of rice vinegar. how it all vegan has some really good sounding dressings so i've decided to work my way thru those. i made a herb dressing from there for lunch today-- sooooo good. i only had dried versions of all the fresh herbs that were supposed to be used but still great. i'll have to try it again with fresh herbs when i get mine growing this summer. next i'll have to start experimenting with types of salad (i've been just doing whatever veggies are in the fridge: lettus or rocket mix, tomato, broccoli, carrot, mushrooms......)
