Simple. Fresh. Crisp. Creamy. Healthy. Crunchy. A bite of tang. Yes, this salad’s got all those things that make for a perfect partner alongside a great steak, some grilled chicken, lamb, seafood~~you get the idea. Then if you’re so inclined you can add corn, roasted red peppers, maybe some garden peas~~whatever colors and flavors speak to you as you’re working magic in your kitchen!
And, if you just want to go solo with this salad, be sure to have some hot crusty buttery bread or dipping oil spiced with something yummy~~harissa, ras el hanut, Italian or Greek seasoning~~yes, it’s that simple, and as Pharrell Williams sings,’…clap along if you know what happiness is to you..’
