Only in The Sims, right? Where else can you pick up a book on rocket science, start building a space ship in your backyard, and travel to space — bringing back an occasional dead alien for inspiration?
I’ve got a few rocket scientists in my game, and of course, I’ve got Edgar Evans, world-famous astronaut.
Today, I’ve slipped into his kitchen and dug up one of his wife’s special space-inspired recipes. It’s long been a family favorite at the Evans home, and with the arrival of spring — and spring greens — you, too, can enjoy this delicious salad.
4 cups torn arugula leaves
1/4 cup fresh pineapple, peeled, cored, and chopped
1/4 red onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons honey
1/4 teaspoon salt
Mix all salad ingredients in a bowl. In a separate small bowl, whisk dressing ingredients together. Pour over salad and toss to coat. Makes four servings.
