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.
