Salad – The Perfect Lunch

Image

What’s the easiest way to plow through a ton of vegetables?  Build a salad.  This version features baby lettuce, carrots, and radishes from this week’s CSA box.  In addition I’ve added heirloom tomatoes, thinly sliced yellow onion, half an avocado, and some Habanero Jack cheese from Safeway.

Southwest Salad Dressing:

Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Lemon Juice
Pepper
Salt
Dash of White Wine Vinegar
Herb Blend (Ancho chili, garlic, onion, cumin, cayenne, oregano, cilantro, chives, bay, and chipotle pepper)

I was out of beans, but this would be a perfect place to add some black or kidney beans for extra protein.
