Green Food

by - 3/10/2009

Yesterday we had a gorgeous weather outside; the sun was shining almost all day long, besides the beautiful cloudy moments, the birds were chirping and flying happily in the air. This kind of weather makes you feel better, healthier, gives a lot of energy that we've missed a lot during the cold, dark winter.

And what is healthier than a green salad at lunch time? All fresh ingredients full of vitamins and fibers: lettuce (vitamin A, folic acid), broccoli (vitamin C, vitamin K), rucola (vitamin C, potassium), champignons (vitamin B, sodium, potassium and phosphorus) and for a bit of aroma a bunch of basil leaves. Chopped and mixed with some olive oil, white vinegar and salt result in a delicious summer (or early spring :) ) salad.

Small tip: try to chop the mushrooms at the very end, because they become softer very quickly, get a darker color and lose their original flavor while in contact with air.

Bon apetit!
