greens

I just ate a green sandwich. Rye bread, avocado, green olives, rocket. Open and inviting.

It is spring, the season of all things green. Here are a few of my favourite things:

Grapes: popped into my mouth by a willing slave
Salsa verde: a big dollop on grilled fish
Peppermint: brewed as a refreshing tea
Dolmades: with tomato and pinenuts and lots of garlic
Avocado: on crunchy toast with lemon juice and black pepper
Coriander: in an Asian soup or stir fry
Asparagus: blanched with wasabi mayo
Pak choy: stir fried with fish sauce
Rocket: with fresh tomato and balsamic vinegar
Parsley: blended with pistachios and garlic
Beans: blanched and crisp in a Nicoise salad
Gooseberries (it is years since I ate them!): an explosion of taste
Sauvignon blanc: the aroma of cut grass

What's your favourite green flavours?

Broad beans, double shelled with a little butter or gravy. Or mushed into a broad bean 'hummous' with lots of lemon, olive oil and garlic.

I bought some asparagus from the markets on the weekend, steamed and dressed it with lemon, pepper and olive oil. A bit of parmesan on top.

A delicious lunch with some bread to mop up the liquid!
