With hubby away on a trip, I am faced with the freedom of not having to cook a substantial supper. So it's salad all the way on this glorious sunny evening - yep, two salads for dinner.
The first (above) is an heirloom tomato, basil, and mozzarella salad, also know as a caprese salad, with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
The second, a simple Caesar salad with crunchy croutons and plenty of grated Parmesan.
So where does the term "salad days" come from?
"My salad days,/ When I was green in judgment, cold in blood."
— Antony and Cleopatra by Shakespeare
The great thing about salad for dinner is that you still have room for a pretty dessert:
