Super Thyme Savor - The Greek Salad Plus

You can not avoid it: The days when no matter what you do, you have no time or energy to cook anything. You open the fridge and pantry but nothing comes at you that requires under 5 minutes or dirtying pots & pans.

I have a solution: The Greek Salad Plus. What is the plus? Whatever vegetables you have left that you can toss on. It helps to utilize the vegetables in the fridge and gives you more nutrients. Here is what I did on Sunday night after arriving home from celebrating my Birthday (let's say 30th) in NYC.



Baby Romaine Salad Mix
Baby Spinach
Reduced fat Feta, chunked
Roasted red peppers, from a jar
Carrots, used to peeler to make strips
Red Onion, sliced
Radishes, sliced
Cucumber, diced
Tomatoes, chunked
Pepperoncini, from the jar
Light Balsamic Vinaigrette

Mix and enjoy

Happy Belated Birthday Jennifer!! Sounds like you had fun : )

That's a good way to use up veggies for sure! That's what I do regularly, just throw as many veggies in my salad as I can, yum!

Jennifer,
I read your chicken pot pie recipe at $5 Dinners, then decided to pop over and check out your blog. It looks great! I like your simple yet creative approach to real food.

I saw your guest post on $5 dinners and definitely want to try the chicken pot pie. But I had to do a serious double take as Jennifer Leal is my maiden name and though I know they exist, I've never run across another. So just had to say hi!

Hope you had a wonderful birthday in NYC!
