Giant Salad Night
I love embarking on big projects in the kitchen... and I can really enjoy being busy for hours in there... but sometimes I just need to eat dinner. Two nights a week I get home from teaching yoga at 9 pm. For years I was always struggling to come up with ideas for quick and simple dinners I could make in 30 minutes or so, while tired and starving. Finally, about a year ago, I came up with Giant Salad Night. So, at least two nights a week, we just have a big giant bowl of salad for dinner, and a little fruit for dessert. I throw in whatever I've got on hand: lettuce, bell peppers, cucumbers, hemp seeds, beans, nuts, tomatoes, spinach, cauliflower, avocados, red cabbage... it's a sea of colors and fresh flavors. It's perfect.
