“To make a good salad is to be a brilliant diplomatist - the problem is entirely the same in both cases. To know how much oil one must mix with one’s vinegar.” - Oscar Wilde
The most versatile of dishes, salads are an emblem of hospitality. Generous and filled with appetizing combinations of fruits, vegetable, meats, grains, legumes, noodles, and nuts there is without the shadow of a doubt a salad combination to please even the most demanding palate.
One of the most healthy and simplest habits to cultivate, incorporating salads into your daily regimen allows for a mix of colors, textures, and flavors to keep you feeling satisfied and living longer. Simply remember that a little dressing goes a long way.
Slow roasting creates a bold caramelized taste sensation to tomatoes as well as a meatier texture ideal for adding an intense concentrated flavor when used in a salad, tossed in pasta or as a topping for crostini.
