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.
The ingredients included:
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 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.
