One Snappy Salad

Memorial Day is fast approaching and I thought you might enjoy a simple and delish salad that you can whip together faster than you can snap your fingers,(hence the reason why I call it my Snappy Salad). I make this salad on repeat and have served it time and time again for friends and family. The verdict is always the same-EVERYONE LOVES it! So I feel pretty confident in sharing the recipe because it’s my fail safe-fast easy and yummy!

* All items are purchased at my neighborhood Trader Joe’s. Full Disclosure: I don’t really measure anything but eyeball how much of each item I prefer…because I’m a believer that when it comes to this Snappy Salad:

“Do as you wish and I promise it will be delish!”

Ingredients

*Use as little or as much of each item as you wish. 

  • 3 Organic Persian Cucumbers
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup Organic Sugar Plum Tomatoes
  • 1 Large Beet cut up *OR (I use Trader Joe’s Beets in Vinaigrette -It’s fantastic and I take about 5 larger pieces from  the jar and cut them into smaller  pieces then  I add to salad)
  • 1/4 cup feta
  • Sprinkle with  Traders Joe’s Roasted and Unsalted Sunflower Seeds

Dressing: 2 options:

  1. Lightly dress with  the juice contained in the Beet jar and lightly drizzle with honey OR
  2. Lightly dress with EVOO and drizzle with honey

You can serve immediately or cover and chill in fridge for later.

ENJOY!

Tuesday’s treat is something totally delish and healthy.

Grilled Corn, Avocado and Tomato Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

 

INGREDIENTS

 

1 pint grape tomatoes

1 ripe avocado

2 ears of fresh sweet corn

2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

HONEY LIME DRESSING

Juice of 1 lime

3 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tbsp honey

Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper, to taste

1 clove garlic, minced

Dash of cayenne pepper

DIRECTIONS

Remove husks from corn and grill over medium heat for 10 minutes. The corn should have some brown spots and be tender and not mushy. Cut the corn off the cob then scrape the cob with the back of your knife to get the juices. Set aside and let cool. Slice the tomatoes in half. Dice the avocado and chop the cilantro.

HONEY LIME DRESSING

1 Add all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside.

2 Combine the sliced tomatoes, avocado, cilantro and grilled corn and honey lime dressing and mix gently so everything is evenly coated. Be careful not to mash the avocados. Let the salad sit for 10-15 minutes to let flavors mingle. Enjoy.
