A delicious and healthy salad perfect alone or paired with a smoothie
Are you an eBayer? Are you one of the ones raising the price way up on things I don’t need, but want anyway?
I’m going to use today’s post to rant – just for a second though, we’ll get to this awesome salad soon 😉
When an eBay item starts at $0.99 with no reserve and ends in 7 days, what do you do? Bid right away and jack the price way up? That just doesn’t make sense to me. Am I missing something?
Anyway – on to things that don’t stress me out – like delicious salads. This salad includes spinach, green pepper, your choice of cheese or tofu, crushed pita chips and dried cranberries. I like to top it with a tahini based dressing like Annie’s.
I must admit I used to hate salad – eating the least amount possible. I found a trick that I still use today – eating all the leafy greens first and saving all the toppings for last. Although, I now like salad, it’s still nice to end a meal with the perfect taste. For this salad, my final bite always includes a pita chip and dried cranberry. I don’t know if this is crazy or not, but, hey, why not?
This salad is completely customizable – use a little less or more of anything, or totally switch out ingredients.
Salads may be a bold item for The Emotional Baker to feature, but I’d thought I’d try my hand at another food genre. Tell me what you think.
