Dinner July 29: salad as meal

Filed under: almost a recipe — Tags: , , — anotheryarn @ 2:31 pm

I had fabulous plans to use up the last of the produce in anticipation of Tuesday’s pick-up.  Then I learned that I would be cooking for one and the planned pasta with herbs and a side of sauteed squash didn’t look so appealing, plus I had some mixed leaf lettuce, a lone roasted beet and 3 radishes to use too.  So I made a salad instead.  What makes a salad a meal?  Large portions and lots of goodies (like yummy cheese and nuts).

  • lettuce
  • 1 teeny tiny pickling cucumber, sliced
  • 2 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1 large roasted beet, peeled and sliced
  • handful of raw pumpkin seeds
  • small handful of dried cranberries
  • crumbled gorgonzola
  • balsamic vinaigrette
This wasn’t the most amazing salad, the ingredients were just a bit mishmosh, but it was yummy and did fill me up.  And the squash is still keeping well, as are the herbs so they will wait.
