Almond Kiwi Alfalfa Salad

Almond Kiwi Alfalfa Salad

Okay. So I don’t have any idea what to name this salad I just made. I just thought I’d eat some –well, a lot of– greens today to balance out what I’ve been eating out of your sight the past few days that I haven’t been posting. {Since I don’t have a yoga ball yet}

If I’m going to name this based on the ingredients I put in it,  it would probably be called Almond Kiwi Apple Carrot Red Cabbage Alfalfa Salad and it wouldn’t be as appetizing as I had envisioned. So I resigned into naming it just Almond Kiwi Alfalfa Salad.

I’ve made a few salad over the years but most of them are either pasta salads, like the Pesto Pasta Salad with Roasted Bell Peppers I made for peanutbutter‘s  birthday two years ago or dessert salads like this Mango Pandan Salad.

And a confession: I don’t really know how to make a beautiful green salad unless it’s in a jar like this Salad in a Jar. I think today is the first I’m happy about how my green salad looks.

Another confession: I’m a secret salad lover. I crave for it the way I crave for dessert. It’s just a thing with me.

Can we have more salads this 2013? You bet.

Like I said earlier, it’s all about balancing things out.

We’ll have more salads…

so we can have more cakes, cookies and maybe some ice cream too if I get my hands on an ice cream maker…
