Don’t Fret. We Got You. We’re Going to Help You Join The “No Rabbit Food” Movement and Send Across A Collection of Salad Recipes Even the Die-Hard Non-Salad Eaters Will Eat.
Salad has the misfortune of continuously being referred to as “rabbit food”. A term best used to describe a bygone era of salads made from lettuce leaves too big to eat in one mouthful, raw cucumber, tomatoes and slices of red onion. Just like the very leaves and grass that rabbits sustain themselves on.
It’s no wonder ranch dressing is so popular. What better way to add some much-needed oomph into a flavourless bowl of vegetables as you wait for the “real” food to be served?
Salads have had quite the resurgence in the last few years with large salad chains competing for a prominent spot in the food industry chain. The likes of Ottolenghi has made salads sexy while the world watched the Kardashians munch on take away salads.
Yet, it’s synonymous association with healthy eating conjures unappetising “rabbit food” thoughts. Even self-proclaimed foodies who travel the world exploring all sorts of cuisines will tell us to our face that they categorically don’t eat salads.
We know that you know, salads are delicious. But that mindset of leaves in a bowl sure is hard to break and as a result of that, you’re not able to enjoy a good salad.
While we have no desire to change your steadfast views, we can’t help but feel that you’re missing out on a big chunk of your culinary repertoire.
So, to make up for it, we have put together a collection of non-leafy, no rabbit food salads. Salads with body, salads with a ton of flavour and salads that will make you go back for more!
There you have it! A whole list of salad recipes with no leaves in sight! Perfectly delicious combination of ingredients that will surely get those taste buds going.
