You’ll love making salad of the imagination - there are so many possible combinations, and so much experimenting to do.
You can use this basic recipe and technique throughout the year, using whatever fresh produce is in season at the time, plus some basic items in your kitchen cupboard.
Seasonal staples include:
- Spring: avocado, carrots, cucumber, radish, snow peas
- Summer: capsicum, celery, corn, green beans, tomatoes, zucchini
- Autumn: capsicum, celeriac (grated, raw), mushrooms, onions, tomatoes
- Winter: beetroot (grated raw), cabbage (sliced thinly), carrot, fennel, peas, snow peas
And always think about herbs like basil, chives, parsley, mint and thyme, as well as green leaves like rocket, spinach and loads of different lettuces that grow all year round.
