Ideas for dinner tonight. Household and kitchen tips, recipes, tweaks. What's worked great, and not so great.
You may be wondering… Multi-National? Well, it’s got some southwest with the black beans, Cat 5 & avocado, some Greek with the Kalamata olives, and I couldn’t come up with a better name at the moment! I’ll happily take suggestions. Here’s a salad packed with flavor that has lots of tasty surprises as you’re eating it. I made a new little discovery also. The “juice” that’s in the can of black beans makes a great salad dressing! Just spoon over the top as you would a dressing. Flavorful and no added anything!
I don’t really have measurements, I just got a plate and added the items as I went along. Use your desired amounts.
Spring Mix greens
a handful of walnuts
1T ground flax seed
1 roma tomato sliced/quartered
chopped Kalamata olives
canned no additive black beans and the “juice” I used Goya
1 carrot, peeled and chopped (save some to julienne for the edges of the plate)
1/4 of a zucchini, sliced & quartered
1/2 of an avocado sliced
Mixture of chopped basil, cilantro, parsley
Cat 5 seasoning
On a plate, start with the greens. Add desired items in desired amounts. Top with a spoonful or two of the bean liquid. Sprinkle with herb mixture, and Cat 5 if desired. Place carrot spears in corners of plate, Enjoy!
