The most beautiful things thrive in warm weather, fruit, flowers… drinks are chilled, food is chilled, it’s the way of life in the tropics. I love salads – making and eating salads, the combination of soft, crunchy, salt, sweet, and tangy. My salad tonight had a bit of warm shredded chicken, some densely fried haloumi, bursts of sweet yellow tomatoes, crunchy greens, soft avocado and then the crispy sweet potato. Just so simple and delicious. Salads have to be balanced to be enjoyed.
