Salad with Walnut-Cashew Pâté.



I felt like being healthier at dinnertime because for lunch I went out with my husband and had a veggie burger and fries at Johnny Rockets. All that junky diner stuff made me crave something fresh, like a salad. I like to prep my salads in a big tupperware that I can serve myself from during the week. My salad today consisted of romaine, green leaf, red bell peppers, cucumber and celery. I add the tomato before serving. I also made the "Ricotta Cheeze" recipe from Ani's Raw Food Kitchen to put on top. It's not really a cheese, more like a pâté I think. Her recipe requires walnuts and pine nuts. I didn't have pine nuts today so I subbed cashews. It was really good with the salad, especially eaten with the tomatoes because I hate raw tomatoes on their own.

Looks good. Do you ever have an issue with a wilted salad that you stored?

Ooooh that Pate/cheese looks delicious. I LOVE Ani Phyo's recipes. It is a crying shame I don't actually get round to making them!
This I must remedy as soon as it's cool enough that my brain stops boiling......I just can't function in this ridiculous heat.

HayMarket,
Not really. I usually spin dry my lettuce first, put it in a tupperware then cover it with a piece of paper towel before I replace the lid. Seems to work well.

This looks great. I love nut pates! I'm curious to know what you use for a camera. I'm in the market for a new one so that I can improve the pix on my blog. Thanks in advance!

GlutenFree,
Thanks! My camera is very low key. It's a Nikon Coolpix that I bought YEARS ago and it still works fine!
