Foraging AroundPosted: June 5, 2015
Whilst we were up in Skipton the other day I got to try an interesting salad dish and an equally interesting serving of it.
Well, actually it was three different ones.
At the Forage Cafe and Deli they offer a selection of home made salads which, if one picks from their Forager’s Board, you can select three (or more) different salads to try together.
I opted for a Beetroot, Goats Cheese, Walnut and Bean – this salad was bright and zingy
Greek-Style Pearl Barley with Feta and Tomato – nice combinations of textures and flavours (But then, they all did)
Wild Rice with Coconut, Carrot, Spring Onion and Almond – The coconut flavours were subtle and light.
They were all super-delicious, freshly made and bursting with flavours.
If only we could be assured of having interesting and flavoursome salads on more restaurants. In far too many eateries Salad means a small handful of wet lettuce leaves with some carrots julienne plonked on top. Uninteresting and unexciting.
More people would try and enjoy salad if they were as stimulating as the ones at Forage.
