I've been aiming to eat a salad for lunch every day at work, and allow myself one non-salad lunch. I got pretty bored of my epic salad, and decided to try an asian inspired salad. I found this recipe:
Instead of mandarin oranges, I used the baby corns that have always made me smile. So it ended up a salad with lettuce, cabbage, water chestnuts, baby corn, and the soy sauce based dressing.
Here it is:
It even LOOKS boring. The water chestnuts were bland, the baby corns were just weird and VERY canned tasting, and the dressing was just one-note. Blah at best. I have no idea where I went wrong, are there good chestnuts and corns I missed at the store? I'll just have to keep trying.
Here are some more pictures of food I am proud of as of late:
Shredded spaghetti squash. The night I took this, I made a lasagna inspired dish with the squash as noodles.
My first successful meatballs! I used ground turkey, and lots of spices. Baked them until they got a little crisp on the outside, yum! Served with tomato sauce and more spaghetti squash.
Some deeeelish rustic tortellini soup. I used turkey sausage, and giant tortellini's with organic, all 'clean' ingredients. What a find, thanks to hubby! It was so, so good. Definitely a family favorite.
