TIPS

.   Steamed carrots or grated raw carrots can be used instead of roasted carrots. Add an extra tablespoon of oil to the dressing.

.   Recipes for salads are one of the most “flexible” making it so easy to change ingredients to suit the season and vegetable availability.

.   Toasted buckwheat makes an interesting salad topping. Sprinkle buckwheat into a frying pan and cook over medium heat until it starts to brown. Remove from the heat as the residual heat in the pan will finish the cooking.
