Salad Time

by Meghann on June 14, 2010

Whatโ€™s a girl to do with a full fridge and no clue what she wants for lunch?

She builds a salad.


Canโ€™t go wrong with a salad. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Spinach
  • Carrots
  • Tomatoes
  • Left over plantains
  • Raisins
  • Hummus
  • Salsa


The salsa is a new-to-me Publix Deli Salsa that was quite delicious. It was really chunky with just the right hint of spiciness. It paired well with the hummus as a creamy dressing of sorts for my salad.

Iโ€™m sad there are only two scones left in my freezer. These babies are good. ๐Ÿ™‚

Earlier this morning I had some nuts and dried kiwi as a snack.


Back to work I go!

Hummus and salsa are the best salad dressings out there!

Salad is a great summertime meal. Sometimes it’s just not necessary to cook!

17 Lisa @ bakebikeblog June 14, 2010 at 5:59 pm

What a tasty looking salad! I love ‘random’ salads when I am trying to use up whats in the fridge! Its always a great way to discover new combinations ๐Ÿ™‚

That scone puts me in the mood to do some baking this week! Yummm

I think I am going to have to pick up some plantains and try them. They looks pretty good.

Salad’s never fail! Ugh…Publix! Come to the Midwest!

22 rebecca lustig June 14, 2010 at 7:37 pm

i love ‘lets clean out the fridge days’… always results in a ridiculous salad mess.

hope you have a marvelous evening,

Race tech tees are truly the best swag ever! I am collecting them now ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m super uncreative, so I have a salad almost every day for lunch! So simple and good and fast. Can’t go wrong! Yours looks great.
