Lunch: Mom’s Salad

Jun 3rd, 2008

This is a salad thing that I learned from my mom who, along with my sister-in-law, is probably the best home cook I know. It’s also one of those things you can make when you need to clean out your fridge.

Chop up vegetables. This can include, but is not limited to: red onions, peppers, cucumbers, hearts of palm, steamed green beans and artichokes. Add a vinaigrette of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. Squeeze a lemon over top. Maybe let it sit for a little bit.

I put it on couscous or, in this case, polenta. It really doesn’t take long! I also added some feta on top. Yum.
