I know what you're all thinking. Oh! Another salad featuring tinned legumes! Hey - at least this one doesn't have roast broccoli in it, ok? And like I said, it's been a rough couple of days adjusting to routine and what-not again. This is actually delicious. And takes about 3 minutes to assemble when you're rushing out the door. Cheap and easy and damn damn good. Just the way summer lunches should be.
One can of Delmaine's four-bean mix, drained and rinsed, half a large ripe avocado, cut into large chunks, a few of those slightly-larger-than-normal cherry tomatoes (I am usually a hater of raw tomato in salads, unless well dressed and ripe, like in a caprese salad or a greek one, but these sweet beauties are just the ticket) crunchy sprout raw bean combo, baby rocket, pumpkin seeds, cubes of Feta and a small drizzle of olive oil (chilli infused is bloody good).
So, baby steps being back in town. I'll get through the mountain of laundry, I'll keep the fresh hydrangeas on my desk, and I'll continue sexying-up my cereal with fresh blueberries, strawberries and piako yoghurt for as long as I can. I'm sure the first few days are the hardest, and really I have nothing to whinge about; concerts galore, exciting visitors to Wellington and grand plans are brewing!
