Have I got a recipe for you!!! From the "Fit for Life" cookbook - tweaked a little here and there. This is truly a winner, especially for busy people who work too many hours and have perhaps a long commute . . . and have a hard time getting in all the veggies that Dr. Oz says we should be eating on a daily basis . . . or for those that want to cut back on meat a little . . . but enough about me . . . No really, this is sooo easy! And sooo delicious! Have I ever steered you wrong??? This is what you do:
Take out your salad bowl and add some romaine lettuce . . . No measuring required! Isn't it great? Just add or subtract quantities according to your whim, or the contents of your refrigerator . . .
Add some baby spinach . . .
Add some julienned sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil, drained . . .
Add some pimiento-stuffed green olives . . . Or experiment with black olives, if you like . . . I won't tell . . .
Add some cooked brown rice. I use Trader Joe's Jasmine Brown Rice - love it, love it, love it!
Add some zucchini that has been lightly sautéed in olive oil and fresh garlic . . .
Shake your favorite vinaigrette, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste over the whole thing and toss to combine . . . Go easy on the dressing, you'll find you don't need a whole lot!
Voilà! Or more appropriately . . . Presto! My husband loved it, and he didn't even miss the meat! I'll be making this one again. Buon Appetito!
