60 Days of Salad - Days 17 to 21

Day 17 - Lentil, Roast Pumpkin, Feta and Rocket Salad
Recipe: Taste
I really liked this one. I've noticed a theme here - I like all the pumpkin ones!!

Day 18 - Salads from Veggie Mama 

Lentil Burger, and 5 salads. (Does that count as five separate salads??)
My favourites were the rice one and the one with pecans.
I hadn't been to Veggie Mama before, but it was awesome - keen to go again :)

Day 19 - Lemon, Chicken and Olive Salad 
Recipe: Taste
I really disliked this one - didn't even eat the leftovers, it was that bad!

Day 20: Roast Cherry Tomato and White Bean Salad 
Recipe: Taste
This one was pretty good! It had cheese and a roasted vegetable - awesome!!

Day 21 - Smoked chicken, mango and iceberg lettuce salad 
Recipe: Taste
So much salad! Yummy though!!

60 Days of Salad - Days 14, 15 and 16

Slowly getting there!

Day 14: Bean and Rocket Salad with Green Olives

Recipe: Taste
I didn't love this one, but the dressing was okay!

Day 15: Poached Chicken and Broad Bean Salad

Recipe: Losing the Last 5 Kilos - Michelle Bridges
Pretty tasty, although not a favourite.

Day 16: Kiwifruit Salsa

Recipe: Taste

Yup, its a salsa. So not really a salad.  But I found it in Taste's salad collection, and if Taste says its a salad, that's good enough for me!! Pretty yummy too - I never would have thought of putting kiwifruit in a salad.

60 Days of Salad - Days 10 and 11

I said last time that I was getting into the swing of things - that failed by the very next which, I mean the universe did not want me to have salad, of course!  I made risotto instead, which obviously doesn't count as salad, but it was so amazing that I think I should definitely share:

Creamy Brie and Mushroom Risotto:
The main ingredients in this are butter, cream and brie. Amazing!!

Recipe: Taste

Onto the salads!!

Day 10 - Crumbed Mushroom Salad
 This one is actually an old favourite - probably because the mushrooms are deep fried. Made for mum and dad when they got back from their trip.

Recipe: Taste

Day 11 - Roast Carrot and Radish Salad:
This was tonight's salad.  You might notice that there are no radishes in the salad.  I can not find a single radish anywhere...Anyway, the salad was alright!
