Gorgeous Spring Salads For The Gods And Goddesses

Gorgeous Spring Salads For The Gods And Goddesses

By Marini's, Food

Somnolent winter days are long gone, ushering in the salubrious spring season. Cold breeze turns warm and temperate, restful faunas are finally awakened and the flora goddesses are seen blooming graciously in bright yet pleasing hues. While the winter is known as an opportunity for loved ones to get together, binging on spreads of food deliciously made with love and sipping away glasses of bubblies, many have admitted to packing on the unwanted holiday calories from these sinful indulgences. 

Vowing to eat better is usually easier said than done, but it is never too late to make changes to your diet before you can flaunt away an aesthetic physique this summer. However, the transition to healthy eating would be made smoother if wholesome foods were something to gush about – fresh, colourful and flavourful. Trading in festive treats and sweet cocktails for kale and lemon infused water, part of the diet that ensues is accompanied by the insalata, or more commonly known as the salad.

Salads are a great and strategic way of serving fibrous goodness into a meal. When done right, high-fiber salads bring you a string of health benefits, richly-packed with nutrients that taste delicious. A simple toss of your favourite vegetables and ingredients mixed together will increase the satisfaction within an individual while losing calories and keeping the stomach fulfilled.

A Leafy Tale Through The Ages

The word “salad” is derived from the Latin word “sal” which literally translates to salt. During the historical gladiator times, the Romans had a penchant for leafy green delights and have enjoyed savouring them with salt as an ingredient in the dressing.

Not differing far from present-day salads, they were commonly served as the first course of meal as popular medical practitioners, Hippocrates and Galen, strongly believed that raw vegetables easily slipped through the digestive system. With the fall of Rome, salads turned less of an essence in western Europe but still remained a feature in the European menu via medieval Spain and Renaissance Italy.

As time progressed, salad greens which were initially served raw, became more demanding with complexed recipes. Composed salads assembled with layers after layers of unique ingredients were enjoyed in the 18th century, called Salmagundi. In today’s culinary scene, they are known as the chef’s salad.

The modern salads we find today function as an essential starter to a meal, naturally in sync with a healthy lifestyle. Salad gained popularity due to its fast trend with A-list celebrities, it is no wonder how a simple dish has turned into an essential appetising dish over a haute cuisine meal. In this day, leafy greens are no longer just a starter dish as the humble salad has now stepped up its game with innovative yet delicious recipes, often seen securing a spot within the variety of main dishes of a menu.

By Marini’s introduces a series of delectable spring salads that will tantalise your tastebuds with their exquisite nature, deeply rooted in a history of culinary resourcefulness, making it a golden fit for tables of gods and goddesses alike.
