I know it will come a time, where I have to graduate from making soups to salads. After all, the weather is warming up lovely and salads are such a nice fresh way to enjoy summer no?
I spotted this recipe from Taste. Looking at it for inspiration, I made our own noodle dressing- with sesame seed dressing + sweet chill + sesame seeds. It provided a nutty sweetness to the beef salad. This is also my first time using Brocollini. A thin long version of broccoli. It's almost like a cross between broccoli and kai lan!
so i'm slowly getting into groove into creating more salads. Summer here we come!
