Between Boston Organics deliveries and overly zealous trips to Whole Foods, I've got produce coming out my, well, produce drawers. And for every ambitious recipe I dig up, there's a warm evening of "awww, screw making dinner."
So I propose a recipe-less summer. *gasp*
Here's how I do. Every day I've got at least 1 bean or grain type sprouting or already sprouted and ready to eat. At the beginning of the week I wash and chop veggies and make a big undressed salad in a big bowl in the fridge. And every other night or so, I throw some stuff in the magic bullet blender and create a fresh salad dressing. Combine those three things and I have a fast, healthy, tasty raw dinner (and 1 grumpy fiancé who has to fend for himself because he's not interested in this recipe-less summer)
Tonight I combined lettuce, tomatoes, celery, cauliflower, green pepper, adzuki sprouts, and radishes because I read that they help clear up mucus and I've had a bad head cold. For the dressing:
Fresh Dill Dressing
This doesn't count as a recipe. Blend oil, vinegar, S+P, small handful of fresh dill and fresh parsley. Everything to taste.
