What is a Simple Summer Salad from Mr. Lazy Cook?

The extreme heat in Chicago finally got to Mr. Lazy Cook. He decided to ‘go light’ this afternoon with a simple salad. Not having made a salad for a while, he chose to go slow at the beginning.

Herewith the fruits, so to speak, of his labors. As Mr. Lazy Cook lives by himself, this recipe serves one.

Here are the fixins for the salad

The ingredients included:

Romaine Lettuce
Crumbled blue cheese
Newman’s Salad Dressing

Cut several slices of lettuce into strips to fill the bowl.
Add 1/2 ounce  pistachios
two tablespoons blueberries
two tablespoons garbanzos
two tablespoons blue cheese (or to taste)
two tablespoons Newman’s Salad Dressing (or to taste)

As if by magic the groceries become a tasty nutritious salad

As you can see from the photo this makes a nice salad with a variety of tastes and textures with all very nutritious ingredients.

Total prep time less than 10 minutes.

The pistachios and cheese provide protein while you get a nice helping of anitoxidants from the blueberries.
