Salad Sensation

I'm taking a break from baking. It's now salad time ! I got this fabulous book on salad that hubby bought for me months ago but I didn't get around to do. It has a complete list of starter salads, main course salads, classic salads, side salads, you name it.

Today I'm making a classic salad and a side salad.

For classic, it's Caesar Salad. The ingredients are much too simple, consisting only lettuce, croutons and some parmesan cheese. But it's all in the dressing which combine egg, lemon juice, garlic, lots of olive oil and a dash of worchestershire sauce. God! it's so yummy, delightful and it just goes well with the croutons you don't need anything else! The taste is so full-filling.

For side salad, it's one named Yoghurt Salad. It's a side, so the dressing is simple but you won't believe how a mixture of yoghurt and honey could wake your bud so much! It's sweet smelling too. It says natural yoghurt but I only had orange flavour light yoghurt. It works even better I think. The salad ingredients are grapes, cabbage, sultanas and 1/2 cup cashewnuts! Imagine crunchy, savoury, sweet..divine! I'm definitely making these over and over again.

You should all try these. It takes no time to prepare and it's yummy!

There are hundreds more in the book that I'm going to experiment one by one. So, just wait for my review.Happy Sunday!

Yoghurt Salad. I know the picture doesn't look much. I halved the recipe since it's only me & hubby. And for my own good, I cut down the cashewnuts.
Caesar Salad. Again the picture doesn't do justice. But belive me, the taste is superb.
