Day 98 - Salad with Dijon Vinaigrette
Started off 2013 with a big delicious salad yesterday, and packed the leftovers for lunch today! Salad greens (yeah, I know they're not dark green, but they were on sale for a dollar. A DOLLAR), carrots, radishes, red bell pepper, tomato, almonds, and feta cheese are all mixed together in the main compartment, accompanied by two medium sized boiled eggs and Nut-Thins.
Have you had Nut-Thins? They're basically rice crackers with a little nut flour, and they come in a variety of flavors. They're not flaking or crumbly like flour crackers, and they're super crunchy...almost like a compact rice cake. Not too much healthier than a cracker, but they pack a lot more flavor and have a little more protein.
What made the salad today was just a little bit of homemade dressing. This one is an old faithful for me, and you probably have all of the ingredients at home!
4 T Olive Oil
2 T Dijon Mustard
2 T Apple Cider Vinegar
1 t dried parsley
1/2 t sugar
Blend all ingredients together with an immersion blender. If you don't have one, then just whisk or shake the ingredients together in a jar with a closed lid. The blender makes it look creamy, as above, but it tastes just as good whisked or shaken! Makes about 1/3 cup of dressing.
