I always seem to find myself rummaging through my fridge and coming across sad-looking vegetables or half eaten pieces of fruit.
Since I hate wasting food and try to eat as many fruits and veggies as possible, I decided to throw “everything but the kitchen sink” into a bowl and make a salad.
There really isn’t recipe to follow, just simply, find what fruits/veggies/nuts/bean/protein/cheese you have leftover in your kitchen and throw it in a big bowl. Lunch or dinner is served!!!
Here’s what I usually have on hand:
- Purple cabbage
- Parsley or Cilantro
- Walnuts or Almonds
- Chicken/Hard Boiled Egg/Turkey (optional)
- Black Beans (optional)
- Feta or Goat Cheese (optional)
- Tortilla Chips (crumbled- NOT optional)
Toss it all together and serve with your favorite dressing. Not only will you have a filling and healthy meal, but you will have used up some ingredients that may have otherwise been thrown out!
