Okay, I’ve been holding off on posting to this section of the blog, not knowing what to do with it. So I’m going to keep it rather simple… if I fruitmonster up a meal based around fruits and leafy greens, it heads directly to this section of the site! Who knows, maybe people will love these recipes, maybe they won’t. There is only one way to find out!
So here’s the debut ‘Fruit Meal’!
Orange-Capsicum Salad Recipe:
Okay for starters, let us clear up that a ‘capsicum’ is the same thing as a ‘bell pepper’ for you northern hemisphere folk!
What you’ll need:
4 Cups Romaine/Cos Lettuce
1 Capsicum/Bell Pepper – Any color will do, mine’s red!
.5 cup Orange Juice
First, chop up the Romaine/Cos lettuce until it is in conveniently bite-sized pieces and put it in your salad bowl. Then, peel the orange, gut the pepper and then and chop them up into small chunks as well, adding them to the mix. Remember a fruitmonster makes things easy on themself and doesn’t worry about the silly differences between chopping/cubing/slicing/dicing… who needs the lingo! Just make it easy to stab with your fork and fit in your mouth (or in true monster fashion – eat with your hands!!). Next, break up the dates (pitting them of course) into halves and sprinkle them overtop of the salad. Finish it off with a dousing of orange juice as a dressing and WOO HOO! Orange Capsicum Salad!
Life is Sweet… Eat that salad up!
That Romaine Ain't So Plain
