Most of you know about oats in a jar, but salad in a jar?…. really? Yes – here is a simple salad that can be assembled ahead of time.
These are the ingredients that I used for this salad creation starting with the base:
- Greek yogurt mixed with a little Dijon mustard salt and pepper to taste (this is the dressing)
- On top of the dressing you can see some corn
- Shredded red and green cabbage for some crunch
- Tofu pesto with pasta (protein + carb)
- Sliced avocado because I just love avocado!
Always keep the dressing at the bottom, don’t mix until you are ready to eat! When you are ready……shake (and I mean shake with the lid tightly secured) the entire container so all the delicious goodness coats all your ingredients evenly. This was what I created with the ingredients I had on hand, feel free to experiment with what you like. This is a great and portable way to make salads a part of your daily routine on the go. Ciao!
Simply Organic- Sesame Ginger Salmon
Dish #1 Veggie Stir Fry
The wonderful folks at Simply Organic sent me an early Christmas box full of all kinds of fabulous seasonings just in time for the holidays! They have a new product line called Steam Gourmet, which takes all the guesswork out of seasoning the perfect salmon or chicken! It comes with its own steam pouch to help create the perfect weeknight entrée and clean up is easy. This Sesame Ginger salmon was fabulous. Make it once eat it twice. The flavors of ginger, chili pepper and sesame seeds really pop in your mouth. Just try it and taste for yourself.
Here I have a simple stir-fry veggie bowl topped with the decadent salmon. This may appear as though you spent all day perfecting your salmon recipe but no one has to know you had some help! Sip on your favorite glass of wine and call it a day.
