Salad a Day Challenge

This week I decided to join L’s “Salad a day” challenge over at tryingnottobefat. I love eating salads (cucumbers are my favorite food, period) and I eat a really big one for lunch just about every single day anyway, so in truth joining the challenge caused no disruption to my life whatsoever. I love non-challenging Challenges! Guaranteed success. Haha. I DID have to add some turkey to my salads in order to follow the rule that the salad have protein, so there was that.

Ingredients

3 or 4 handfuls of red leaf lettuce (it’s not as healthy as Romaine, but it’s my fave!)
1 handful of pre-sliced and pre-washed mushrooms
1/3 of an avocado
1/3 of a large cucumber
A little bit of onion, sliced really thin (which is the only way I can tolerate raw onion)
A quarter pound of Boar’s Head turkey, cubed
One small tomato
Half a roasted red pepper, sliced
8 cubes of cheddar cheese that my mom brought me from her work

I dressed it with 5 teaspoons of olive oil and 3 teaspoons of balsamic vinegar, added a little bit of salt, and then mixed it all up (must…refrain…from…”salad tossing” joke…). Delish!!

  2. NICE salad!! Try to get your hands on 25 year old balsamic. It’s incredible, but usually 40-50$ a bottle. It’s thick and syrupy just from old long it’s been aged. Don’t need oil or anything!
