In this heat we’ve been enduring lately (I know you’re sick of me talking about it already, but really, it’s quite miserable and all I can think about!) I have only been wanting to eat COLD foods. I can’t stand the thought of turning that damn oven on inside when it’s already like an oven outside! Therefore, my food has consisted of Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, fruit on fruit on fruit, cold veggies, hummus, and salads. I thought I’d share some of the salads I’ve been eating lately.
Loaded Chicken Salad: Spring mix, chicken (seasoned on the stove with some salt and pepper), chickpeas (aka garbonzo beans), sun dried tomatoes, mozzerella cheese. Whisk some olive oil and balsamic vinegar for a delicious and super light dressing!
Egg and Chickpea Salad: Spring mix, hard boiled egg (quartered), chickpeas, cubed apples, mozzerella cheese. Drizzle on some olive oil and red wine vinegar!
Fruit Salad: Watermelon, strawberries, apples, all cubed and thrown into a bowl. Any and all fruit will do. :) This is my very favourite snack or dessert or side on any hot Summer day!
Bon appetit! Let me know if you try any of these out.
