As summer comes along (not that you’d know it today, London is a washout. So much for May Day) I start thinking of salads
Salads in general and salads for 5:2 diet in particular. The :2 obviously being the problem
Last night I had a Thai style salad, dressed with lime juice, fish sauce, a little garlic, and garnished with sliced chillies, spring onions, and coriander. Very nice
but not for every salad for the next 5 months!
I would be interested in ideas for homemade dressings, or for any bought ones worth eating. It would be good to have plan A and plan B.
I’ve looked around and so many recipes for lighter dressings make 300 ml and won’t keep for more than 24 hours or 48 at best. I either need to make less, or be able to keep it
Most bought diet dressings are
IMO but I am prepared to try any that are well-recommended
I am currently eating a mixed salad dressed with Carluccio’s Salsa di Mostarda, which is sold as a general condiment; it works well on root veg and tomatoes but not everything, at 21 kcal per 10 ml glug. Diabetics beware – virtually all those calories are sugar, it’s 51% w/v sugars.
I know I can use less of an ordinary dressing, but for 5:2 I find I want more dressing than I can “afford” if I use a nice oil in it.
