Thistle salad – Eeyore would approve


If you opened a pillow pack of salad from the supermarket and found a thistle in it, you’d be horrified – non? So why was it that when I found a tiny and very prickly thistle in tonight’s salad that I grinned, thought of A.A. Milne’s Eeyore, picked it out and tried hard not to eat all of the remaining salad leaves before dressing them and sharing them with the rest of the gang? Perhaps it had something to do with the fact that the salad had come all the way from, oooh – let me think – 20 miles away, that it tasted like nothing on earth and that the thistle was utter proof that the silky green leaves that were scattered on the kitchen counter had never even sniffed a pesticide let alone been drowned in the stuff  … perhaps.
