It's Friday! Time for another flashback with Suzy from Kitchen Bouquet. Join Suzy almost every Friday to flashback to whatever you like, flowers, recipes, anything! So I'm flashing back to a very easy and really great salad recipe! Made this one a while back, I think it was on my first blog, the one I hit delete and couldn't get it back, but it's so good, I'm happy to revisit it! Made it for lunch today, for me and my mom!
I pretty much followed this one the first time, but this time I didn't have red cabbage, frisée or radicchio and didn't feel like going out to get some. So I used whatever I had. Ham, salami, provolone, kalamata olives, red onion and baby arugula. So good. The peppery arugula with the salami and onions! Ok, so I used a ton of red onions, don't get so close, you're lucky you're out there in blogland! Added some boiled ham because I had it! Great salad! I think I really enjoy not working any more and having to just grab whatever I could, now it's much nicer to sit with someone and have a nice lunch. Wish I had a baguette. Next time!
