The Heart of the Matter, The Heart Healthy Salad Roundup
Now it is time for the roundup of last month’s The Heart of the Matter, the theme was Heart Healthy Salads and I am delighted to say that I have received a whole bunch of delicious and inspiring salads for us to try out! I don’t have much appetite right now as it is very hot and humid here right now but going through the entries this morning has created a certain appetite I have to say. I think you will feel the same at the end of this roundup!
The first entry I got was from The Blushing Hostess who sent in a delicious Fresh Field Pea and Brown Rice Salad with Chile Pasilla Vinaigrette to be eaten on a well mown lawn! Or what do you say Cathrine? (If you read her post you will understand what I am alluding to)
Sweet Arfi from HomeMadeS sent in a Mixed Green Leaves with Shaved Beetroots, Apples, Walnut and Blue Cheese, both crunchy and tasty!
This time we have an Italian food blogger among us, Rori from Ma Che Ti Sei Mangiato who even has translated her post into English for those of you who don’t know Italian. Her entry is a The Day After Farro and Barley Salad that must be perfect on a hot day!
A beautiful Chicken, Cherry Tomato, Spinach and Raisin Couscous Salad, that is what Michelle from the Greedy Gourmet has prepared for the HotM this month!
Chris from Mele Cotte has sent me her delicious Spinach, Strawberries, Mandarin oranges, Walnuts, Honey roasted turkey and Blue cheese Salad. Go and check out her incredible cake decorations too!
And last and slightly reluctant, I forced Tanna of My Kitchen In Half Cups to participate with her Texas Carrot Salad. She insists on calling it Ilva style but I honestly think it is pure Tanna style, check it out and decide for yourselves!
Oh, I forgot my own entries, I made a Lentil and Potato Salad with Tomato and Oregano Dressing,
and finally a Fruit Salad with Chili Pepper and Lime Honey!
Thanks a lot to all the participants who make this event a success, without you it wouldn’t exist! And if I have forgotten someone or something, please tell me!
