Spring into Salads

Dinner this week (and lunches) have been a breeze. On Sunday, I made a number of salads-all vegan-to serve this week.
A cherry tomato and mushroom salad
A couscous with marinated Greek vegetables and chickpeas
A bow tie pasta salad with olives and sun-dried tomatoes
My new favorite pasta salad with broccoli and carrots

Now when it gets to be meal time, I can serve up one or two or three salads for dinner. Add a sprinkle of cheese, or a side of leftover grilled steak on top/the side if someone won’t feel “full” after “just salad”. I can put the couscous in a tortilla or on bread for a sandwich. The mushroom salad also makes a great sandwich.

I should plan ahead and cook ahead more often-it is the best eating week in months here.

  1. Wah. I just wish I hadn’t been sick for two days of this. Sigh.

  2. That’s very smart of you TW to prepare those salads ahead of time and just take them out when you need them….and you made so many. That’s what I need to do more of. It’s amazing how easily I can get distracted with ANYTHING other than preparing food for me to eat. I’m actually inspired sweetie….thanks.

    Denise…you’ve been sick? I hope you’re feeling all better now cookie… Hugs, Joy
