Apple, Radish, and Cucumber Salad
Hello. My name is Zylo, and I'm addicted to porn. I spend a great deal of time surfing food blogs and eye-fucking food porn. I can't believe how good these pictures are. They're so clear and colorful and well-composed. And mine... well, aren't. I have finally gotten to a point where I may invest in a better camera in the next year or so. However, I can't blame my trusty little camera for the rest - that's all me, boys! So I present to you an awful picture of my salad. But hark, I will be presenting you with better pictures. Later. Maybe.
Back to the salad. It's not pretty, but its fresh and a good foil for too-rich quiche. The bakery on my block has great quiche, don't get me wrong, but it was very very rich, even for me. This livened it right up. It also works well for cream heavy dishes like my recent pasta. I accidentally left out the mustard the first time and wondered why it just didn't taste right. Everything was better after it was included. This was a nice crispy salad that had a good combination of flavors to keep it interesting. I'm also a fan of anything sweet and savory, so this fit well with everything else I ate.
But now I pose a question: how do you keep your cucumbers from getting watery? I've done the salted and drained thing but that has NEVER worked for me. What am I doing wrong? If you have a tip, please let me know. Otherwise, go make some salad.
