beka stays hungry : chopped everything salad

For those of you who may have had too many Super Snacks on Super Sunday, here’s an easy way to get back on track:

Pillage your refrigerator for anything green and/or from the ground. Chop it all up. Store it in the biggest bowl you have. Add it to the side of every lunch and dinner for the rest of the week.

Bam! You’ll instantly feel better about life after 10 – 12 side salads (especially after Sunday’s 10 – 12 bowls of popcorn). It’s also much easier to make the good intentions of salad a reality when you don’t have to do all of the chopping/mixing/dressing before every meal.

Kitchen productivity, people. It makes all the difference!

Here’s what threw into that monster bowl above:

  • 1 bag of Wegmans Spinach and Arugula Mix
  • Carrots
  • Tomatoes
  • Broccoli
  • Red, Yellow, and Green Peppers
  • Cucumbers
  • Blueberries
  • Green Onion
  • Cilantro

Dressing:

  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Fresh Lime Juice
  • Hummus

(I mixed the balsamic vinegar with lime juice and kept it in a separate jar. Then, when I was ready to have some salad, I just added the dressing and a dollop of hummus.)

Go forth and chop vegetables, my friends. And have a great Tuesday!
