My salad recipes vary from ones that are quick to rustle up to salads with quite a long list of ingredients.
These recipes do not require that you follow them slavishly (not many recipes do) – look upon them only as blueprints and get creative with that salad bowl of yours.

You only need to use a small amount of good balsamic vinegar though as the flavour is so concentrated, making a bottle of the good stuff last longer.
