A vegetable based starter is an excellent way of contributing to the recommended five-a-day for fruit & vegetables. I first thought about a simple French bean (haricot verts) salad as a starter after witnessing two rather slim Parisian ladies 'tucking' into this at lunchtime.
I felt quite satisfied as I was eating the same thing, but noticed that along with sipping mineral water they went on to eat another plate of this salad for main course. Needless to say I wasn't eating, or drinking the same as them at this stage!
