Pièce De Résistance – Salade “l’Italien”

 

“The Italian”

>
During the past three weeks, I have lost the 15 lbs I had gained during my trip to Europe. Although I eat what I want every day, my choices are guided by common sense. I do eat starch and protein, but the portions are a lot smaller than one would usually find on my table. On the other hand, I eat LOT’S of fruit, veggies and of course, salad.
Usually, when we think of salad, a wedge of lettuce or some tossed leaves come to mind. But, if the salad is the mainstay of a day’s worth of nutrition, it has to be more complex, filling and satisfying, such as this here beauty 🙂

Sometimes,  a simple sandwich can satisfy all my culinary needs, as long as it is interesting, tasty and – yes – as long as it looks great and appetizing!
When a slice of dry turkey and sandwich spread between two slices of wonder bread won’t do, (which, for me, is NEVER!),  a sexy beauty like “The Italianator”  will surely ring the bells of culinary bliss and lets me forget steaks and lobsters, at least for the moment.
– And on top of it, getting to name these creations is much fun in itself. 🙂
