Salads

My salad resolution was going great. My second week I made quinoa tabouli (quinoa, tomatoes, cilantro, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper), week three: beet salad (cooked beets, raw snow peas snapped in half, raw spinach, goat cheese, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar) and week four I made quinoa with kale pesto and kalamata olives! These week, however, I didn’t do so well. I just bought a lot of coffee, and on Thursday, the jumbo gryo and international cafe. It was absolutely delicious, but this means I have to have TWO salads next week. I have expanded my resolution, I have to have a different salad every week. I have already thought of two for next week. My grandma’s broccoli sunshine salad, and what I think is a brillant idea, a grown up 3 bean salad with a tahini salad. What do you think, any ideas?

    I’m not sure if you eat fish or not, but I enjoy a a cold grilled tuna steak and mango salad. I use spinich, feta cheese, scallions, baby tomatoes, sliced mango, and a homemade mango vinegrette. The vinegrette is easy to make: just blend together pieces of mango, a little bit of olive oil, salt, pepper and rice vinegar. The tuna steak can be grilled at any time and kept in the fridge, since you eat it cold.

    having had my share of jumbo gyros at international cafe, i’d definitely say there is at least a house salads worth of veggies in one. i’m not trying to encourage you to go off your resolution, but i don’t think you should ever feel bad about going to international cafe.
