Two Happy Salads #Vegan

“Two Happy Salads” — Sounds like a Thomas M. Disch short story, doesn’t it? But, no, it’s just a food post.

Like a lot of people, we like salad A LOT in the hot weather. We usually don’t put tomatoes in, because fresh tomatoes are just too good to mix with anything else. And that’s kind of strange, since, before I married Charlie, the only salad I ever cared for at all was lettuce-and-tomato salad.

Now, I do stuff like this:

ParsterSaladLeftover whole-wheat spaghetti, orange bell pepper, cucumber, mushroom, Italian dressing.

and this:

AntiParsterSaladSame thing with olives instead of pasta.

What’s your favorite summer salad?

          Oh, Joey, I’ve also seen a wedge salad that was just a wedge of lettuce and sliced hard-boiled egg. Of course, I would have to sprinkle some capers on there. Drizzle it with spicy French dressing.

    I am literally so paranoid about cleaning off salad fixings that I do not even buy leafy veg at the store anymore. I don’t know how to resolve this problem short of growing my own lettuce, and let’s face it, that is not going to happen.

    Altho….I’ve seen lettuce grown on a vertical sort of wall of growing stuff thingy….. Maybe lettuce just grown on a matrix… Wait a minute. Did I say matrix?

      I hear you, Jane. But I’m aware of so many things that can kill ya, I’ve gone beyond paranoid and right into fatalistic. Not that I don’t want to crawl into an artificial womb and pretend I’m never gettin’ bornded, but I also have a certain amount of WTF goin’ on.
