salad spree

A few days ago, I went on a salad spree – because salad leaves were on special at the supermarket. There is a distinct sharpness in the taste of salad, and a strong ‘grassy’ after taste too. I know many autistic people who refuse to eat raw vegetables. I do empathise, I don’t much like the texture, too invasive, scratchy and rough, and it makes too loud a sound that echoes in the head when being masticated, but I endure it because I like the overall taste and small sensation. And I love my own salad dressing! Balsamic vinegar is far too expensive for me now on my tight budget, so I use hot English mustard, or a lighter Japanese wasabe, mixed with Flaxseed oil or Olive oil, and soy sauce, and sometimes a dash of lemon juice.

Salad leaves are also very versatile. Always handy with leftovers and whatever.
