Olive oil

Chop into large pieces and toss Cauliflower, beetroot, onion and garlic in a bag with ground cumin, cumin seeds, mustard seeds and plenty of olive oil. Bake on a flat pan until roasted well.

Cook french lentils with a bay leaf until al dente, rinse with cold water, strain and cool. Gently toast walnuts in a frypan.

Using hands and a machete or large knife:
Chop green papaya to thin ribbony strips, you may cut more carefully if you do not want to hack at green papaya with a machete, but this is the coolest and most authentic preparation.

In a large wooden som tam bowl pummel all ingredients listed with a large wooden pummelling stick thing, or use a sturdy bowl and pummel with a rolling pin until all ingredients are beat up. Serve.

chorizo seem too greasy for leafy greens??

I think spinach is tough enough to stand up to it. maybe add some croutons/panzanella to help with that.

Confession: I’ve been buying salad kits. I usually add cucumbers or red pepper so I don’t feel like a total knob. But damn if it isn’t an easy fast dinner.

Nuts are critical

I like chopped dried fruits and crumbly cheese and pickled vegetables

You can sneak quinoa into any salad for a #lifehack

i'll throw anything in there. one of my favorite things to do is crush up any chips or pretzels i have and sprinkle them on top. especially recommended with snyder's cheddar pretzel pieces

for a less chaotic contribution, this is the most delicious salad i've ever had:
