right now...


Man, I don't do salad's very often -eeek really I should- but this sexy piece of greenery has got me good. I seriously could eat this everyday. This warm salad has all the right bits, texture, flavor's and healthy goodness.


recipe
(or more like what I threw together)

arugula and spinach leaf mix
1/2 cup cucumber sliced thinly
1 cup of edamame beans, frozen
2-3 rashers of bacon
1 handful of whole pecans crushed
fresh mozzarella ripped apart (optional)

dressing

2 tsp rice wine vinegar
2 tsp olive oil
a light drizzle of sesame oil
1 pinch of garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
(this makes more then enough)

Make the dressing and set aside. Microwave the edamame according to packets instructions. In a pan fry the bacon till crispy, drain on a paper towel then cut up into small pieces. Mix the rest of the ingredients into a bowl then add bacon, edamame and top with the dressing, toss and eat straight away.
