New Year – New Salad

Instead of going on a diet (food programme, regime, plan – call it what you will to make it more palatable !) ,  and pounding away on a treadmill (I understand gym memberships soar at this time of year) I thought I would assess the contents of my fridge instead and come up each day with a different meal from my usual ones – either new ingredients I’ve never tried or familiar ones in a new combination.

I don’t intend toiling for hours over a hot stove – I wouldn’t have time then for all my other resolutions – yoga, sketching, visit one new country every six months,   rock climbing (kidding!) No, – some of my favourite dishes are quick to prepare – coleslaw, salads, cous cous with  roast veg, even home made hummus only takes a few minutes.

So here’s my first – tropical fruit salad – melon, grapes, lime zest, coconut milk and mint – okay, mint is not tropical and neither are grapes, but 3 out of 5’s not bad! And remember my objectives – i) use what’s in the fridge!  ii) use a different combination of ingredients.

Prep time: 5 minutes   Result: Delicious.
