Last night I made a pea and radish salad and slow roasted balsamic zucchini from The Cook and The Gardener . I also picked up some La Brea bakery rosemary and olive oil bread, and spread some Trader Joe's sundried tomato pesto and some freshly grated Pecorino-Romano on top, tossing it in the oven for the last few minutes with the zucchini.

It was delicious- light and summery- but I secretly hate salads that are anything more than lettuce, some nuts or croutons, maybe some sliced white mushrooms, and a good vinaigrette. Much more than that and I lose my desire to eat it. I think I need to come to terms with this and stop making salads that are delicious, but will go uneaten. Although I'll eat most of the TJ's salads. I don't know what my problem is.
