Salmon salad with crunchy nuts sounds delightful doesn’t it?
In my opinion enjoying food isn’t just about taste but also texture and mouthfeel. I didn’t realise mouthfeel was a word until I started food blogging. When I was younger I really liked really crunchy (like crunchy nuts) and chewy (like nougat) foods but being a child of a less than enlightened government dental health policy in Queensland in the 1960s and 1970s, I never had the benefit of fluoridated water. That’s about my only complaint I’ll ever share about Queensland Government when I was growing up. Without fluoridated water, coupled with a stubborn refusal to obey my mother’s instructions to regularly brush and floss my teeth thoroughly, many of my teeth have cavities and fillings. I have three ceramic crowns and two gold crowns worth thousands of dollars not to mention about half of my teeth have had root canal treatments.
Sorry, back to mouthfeel. I like the smoothness of some mango in salad as well as the crunch of some nuts not to mention the creaminess of avocado. Tonight I enjoyed the soft warm flakey feel of just cooked Atlantic salmon along with the sweet tangy happiness of mango and the robust texture of some crushed crunchy nuts.

Monday blogging link love
Today I wanted to share some links from the Canberra Food Bloggers Facebook group as well as some other bloggers I’m friendly with.
