As I mentioned in Monday’s picnic table reveal post my camera is in the shop being repaired. I have had to live without it for 4 weeks and it is killing me because I take it everywhere! Today is my 7th summer salad in my summer salad series and I asked my facebook friends to let me know if they had a recipe they would like to share with all of you. Thankfully Tari from Palo Alto emailed me with her husband Kent’s veggie summer salad and a picture, thanks Tari!
I hope you are enjoying this fun healthy summer series, let me know if you have a salad that you would like me to share!
Here’s a vegetable summer salad that your readers might enjoy. My husband, Kent, created it. Quantities are guesstimate, as it’s more a “look and feel” process…
1/4 head small cabbage, shredded
1/4 head cauliflower, chopped small
1-large or 2-small broccoli heads, chopped small
3-4 small/medium tomatoes, chopped
1/8-1/4 C roasted pine nuts (walnuts work, too)
1/8 C dried cranberries (Kent uses orange cranberries from Trader Joe’s)
1/3 C Gorgonzola cheese crumbles
1/3 C chopped fresh cilantro
1 C chicken, diced (we use the Costco rotisserie chicken)
Vinegar & Oil dressing of your choice (he makes his own with 1/3 C Extra Virgin Olive Oil and 1/8 C Balsamic Vinegar, salt & pepper)
Other things you can add:
Cooked frozen corn and/or peas – we typically use any left-over previous meals
beets, diced (Kent roasts fresh beets in the oven…yum!)
Toss ingredients together. He adds a little salt and pepper to taste.
