This afternoon I went along to our local just-round-the-corner green grocers to pick up some cucumbers.
I guess I should make a confession about now. I’m an addict. Yup, that’s right, I’m addicted – to cucumbers!! I eat between 1-2 a day and on rare occasions I get through, cough cough, 3!!! :/ I’m kind of wierd, I know, but hey, they have no badness in them and a make a good healthy snack and anyway, I could be snacking on far more unhealthy food, right?!?. So when I spot a bargain price on cucumbers, I dive right in there – today I grabbed 4, just to last me ’till Friday or Saturday …
The stacks and stacks of brightly coloured fruits and vegetables looked so gorgeous and irresistable that I just had to take some photos!!!
It almost makes you want to pick one up and eat it like an apple, doesn’t ti?!
I wonder why it is that potatoes which are still covered in their natural mud look so much more appealing and healthy?
So beautifully red!
Fresh nectarines – yum!!
Love this colour green!
My hubby’s favourite dessert at the moment is cherry pie!
“I could just do with a big, juicy strawberry. Martin used to bring me strawberries.”
Anyone recognize that quote?!
Aren’t these little apricots so cute?!?
These watermelons are MAHOOSIVE!!! For England, anyway!!
After admiring all those fresh vegetables and fruits, I felt inspired to make a truly delicious salad!
Lettice, cucumber (I had to really, didn’t I?!), tomato, pepper, radish, raw mushrooms, cheese, chicken, walnuts, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, topped of with a dash of olive oil and balsamic vinegar and a generous grinding of black pepper.
Crispy, fresh, crunchy and completely tasty salad!!
Big sigh of contentment!
What is your favourite kind of salad? Have you tried out any new ingredients recently?
