Salad Tuesday and Flat Bread

I added a tab on the blog called “Operation Wedding“. I’ll be tracking my workouts and progress over the next 2.5 months… July 24th is quickly approaching! Operation Wedding is well underway – I am very sore this morning.

In other wedding news, I got a caterer. It’s going to be a secret though. You will just have to wait and see because I feel like being secretive. At least for now.

I wanted to share two yummy salads that I have made recently. I always eat more salads in the summer – I just crave them. And I have decided that $2.99 for a bunch of kale is not so terrible. It’s cheaper than eating out, I suppose.

Salad numero uno:

  • base: romaine; massaged kale with avocado, lemon juice, salt, and bragg’s liquid aminos
  • toppings: tomatoes, cucumbers, uncured organic turkey bologna (nitrate/nitrite-free)
  • dressing: pear-feta dressing from trader joe’s

Salad numero dos:

  • base: romaine; massaged kale with avocado, lemon juice, salt, and bragg’s liquid aminos
  • toppings: beets sauteed in butter + some cilantro, uncured organic turkey bologna (nitrate/nitrite-free), shredded cheddar cheese
  • dressing: annie’s lite honey mustard dressing

They were delicious. Reminds me of doing Leng’s salad challenges last year. I hear RhodeyGirl is doing a salad challenge right now too, and so is Lara. I adore salad, and I probably have a salad almost every day without even trying. Don’t forget, I am The Salad Girl.

In non-salad news, I had this amazing flatbread from Trader Joe’s this weekend:

It was called the “Tarte aux Champignons” – a French style flat bread with mushrooms, emmental, and parmesan (love!) cheese. I ate half and Bobby ate half… but I stole his crust. It was amazing. I actually wish the whole thing was just crust. We’ll definitely be buying this again if we can ever get into Trader Joe’s. I had to get this when I was in New Jersey because the Union Square Trader Joe’s lines are always too long.

What’s your favorite salad dressing? Mine is certainly honey mustard! I get it 99% of the time.

    I usually have some sort of vinegarette. I really love my hubs three cheese ranch when I sneak some of it 😉

    Mmm, delicious looking salads! I usually don’t add salad dressing to my salads, because I usually just add flavourful tidbits on top (usually sliced olives) But when I do it’s usually just a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. Oh, and I love salsa on salads too!

    I got to your blog from Eat the Damn Cake. I love your blog! Oh, and congratulations on your wedding! 🙂

    How is that pear feta dressing from TJ’s? I’ve been loving the poppyseed but I think I need a change.
    Yay for salads! Thanks for the mention. I totally thought of you when I started this thing 🙂

    That flatbread looks so good! Is it in the fresh bread section or the frozen section? I want it!

    As for salad dressing, I used to be only a honey mustard girl, but then I got this salad mix at Trader Joe’s (I forget what it’s called but it has spinach, walnuts, dried edamame, dried cherries and blueberries…and I add beans and avocado) that comes with this raspberry/cherry viniagrette and I LOVE it. Probably a phase…

    Mmmm your salads look glorious.

    I like homemade salad dressings- just about any kind- or hummus as a salad dressing. But most of the time my salads are “naked”. I’ve never been a big fan of dressings. They often tend to overwhelm salads and take away from any other taste!

    Oh we just love salads, Favorite dressing is either just fresh lemon juice or mashing up an avocado with some lime. 🙂

    Best of luck with Operation Wedding!

    Heh, my favorite dressings are tangy ones…like your miso-tahini one!
