During the summer, it makes a pleasant change to eat something light and simple. Ingredients for salads (tomatoes, cucumber, radishes, lettuce etc.) are abundant and generally inexpensive. In addition, a mixed salad can often be produced from a variety of 'leftovers', which makes it very economical.
It isn't necessary to present dozens of different items to produce an interesting and tasty salad; sometimes a simple plate with just two or three different items can taste just perfect. Much of the fun and enjoyment of a salad is the presentation. A variety of colours, nicely positioned on a plate or contrasting in a mixed salad will actually improve the flavour since the taste buds are activated by sight before food is eaten. Take a little time to find colourful ingredients.
