Simple Salads

At times I forget that food doesn’t need to be complicated to have great flavor.  To prove my point, I made a raw asparagus salad for lunch today.  Only six ingredient and very tasty.

Raw Asparagus Salad (adapted from Foodista)

1/2 pound fresh asparagus spears
1 tbls white wine vinegar
2 tbls olive oil
salt & pepper to taste
roasted sesame seeds (optional)

Use a julienne peeler to slice raw asparagus into long strips (I used a regular vegetable peeler, not as effective, but it works).  Chop asparagus tips.  In a bowl, sprinkle asparagus with salt and pepper, toss with olive oil and vinegar.  Sprinkle in sesame seeds and toss again.

I used less olive oil and more vinegar.

Though I didn’t take pictures, I made a kale, avocado and Pistachio nut salad with a simple lemon juice and olive oil dressing last night.  My friend prepared a delicious dinner, and this was my contribution.  We were all very pleased and well fed.  Love it when that happens.

Kale, Avocado and Pistachio Nut Salad

1 bunch of kale, rinsed and ripped into bit-size pieces
1 avocado, cubed
1/2 Pistachio nuts, shelled
salt & pepper to taste
juice of 2 lemons
1 tbls olive oil

Whisk olive oil and lemon juice together.  In a bowl, toss kale, avocado and nuts in the lemon dressing.  Salt and pepper to taste.
