Triple Chilli Chaat

Wonderful weather. Dry, sunny, slight sea breeze.

Meh, what’re you gonna do?

More importantly, what’re you not gonna do?

What you most certainly aren’t going to do is spend, as the bard of Whalley Range so perfectly put it, “warm, Summer days indoors…”

Prosciutto, Date, And Nut Salad

Prosciutto, date, and nut salad

The Paleovirtus womenfolk were having steaks.

I’d had a largish lunch, and couldn’t quite see myself managing a whole lump of beef.

I wanted a salad, but something with a bit of body behind it, if you follow.

I’ll have to be brief here, because as Björn and Benny so eloquently put it – “Day is dawning, and I must go…”

Soon I’ll be packing my case, and setting off on the long walk to the station, to catch a fast train, bound for London, the airport, and ultimately, the Home Kitchen.

According to the packaging, they could be used raw in salads. Sounds good to me!

Kachumber – Indian Onion, Tomato, and Cucumber Salad

Kachumber

Kachumber

This simple side salad goes supremely well with virtually any Indian dish you care to name.

Many, many variations exist around the central theme of cucumber, onion, tomato, herb, and acid.

There’s also a sub-debate about the inclusion of finely chopped fresh green chillies, too, not to mention potential controversy when you even hint at introducing other vegetables into the mix.

“What, another spinach based salad? You posted a spinach salad recipe only yesterday, Keith!”

Yes. Yes I did.

Regular readers,  however, may recall how much I deplore waste, and I had the other half of a pack of spinach sat in the fridge looking for a dish to make its home. I also had the remains of a red cabbage whose time was nearly up. No-brainer, really.
