Being a bit of a veggie freak, I’m always buying surplus to the needs of my little household. I’m like a drunk girl in a 7-Eleven at 3am when I’m set loose in the markets, touching and sniffing everything with a big loony smile on my face. I’m convinced 63 bunches of kale is a rational purchase for a family of two. The hubs thinks I’m mildly crazy, but he’ll be thanking me when he doesn’t get scurvy.
So this habit of over-buying leads to some creative and colourful salads, because I also get a smug satisfaction from using everything up. The beaut thing about this bowl of goodness is the hardy veg doesn’t go all limp and gross overnight in the fridge (and the apple doesn’t go brown because of the lime juice), even when dressed, so leftovers are perfect for the lunchbox the next day. Genius.
