As I always prepare my own food I was concerned how I would cope on holiday, staying in a hotel without a kitchen.
I was pleased to find our room was fitted with a mini bar, so I had access to a fridge. But I knew my meals would have to be aroundand fresh ingredients, alongside whatever I could scrounge from the continental breakfast buffet in the mornings.
And that’s just the salads I remembered to photograph.
I was inspired by the salads in Germany. I think my salads were getting a bit samey. I have learned that variety of tastes and textures are key. Rather than having large portions of two or three vegetables, the salads were made up of a variety of different veg.
I was excited to go to the supermarket on Sunday. When we went away I emptied the fridge and ‘freezer’ (we only have an icebox) so I was able to start from scratch.
It was certainly good to eat cooked vegetables again when I got home!
What are your favourite vegetables? Do you stick to the same thing, or do you like variety? Which veg are always in your shopping bag?
