Sometimes I search my fridge and cupboards and make a meal out of what I find. That’s how I came up with this chopped salad on a Saturday afternoon, that the kids loved.
Use the ingredients you may have on hand and like. My goal is to get as many plant based foods in the meal as possible.
What You’ll Need
tomatoes, a dozen cherry, chopped, or 2-3 regular, chopped
beans, canned cannelloni, one 16 oz can
green pepper, 1 chopped
yellow pepper, 1 chopped
roasted red pepper, 1, chopped
red onion, 1/2, chopped
salami (optional) 1/4 cup (small handful), I buy nitrate free salami
thyme, 2 sprigs, 1/2 tablespoon (1 teaspoon dried)
oregano, 1/2 tablespoon fresh, chopped, (1 teaspoon dried)
basil, 1/2 tablespoon fresh, chopped, (1 teaspoon dried)
olive oil, extra virgin, drizzle
balsamic vinegar, drizzle
sea salt and pepper to taste
- Chop all ingredients. Place in a salad bowl, drizzle with all oil and vinegar, and season with salt and pepper. Bon Appetit!
