After blogging this post, I got to thinking, and I just made this salad:
3 crowns broccoli, cut in florets and steamed until tender
1 large carrot, shredded by using fine julienne in my Swissmar V-Slicer*
1/2 c pecans, chopped coarsely
1 avocado, cut into chunks
4-5 scallions, sliced
1 can sardines in olive oil, drained
dressing of 1/2 c yogurt, 1/4 c vinaigrette
Tossed and tasted: quite nice. Might add some juice from a Meyer lemon.
My intention was to simmer a cubed yam in the water I used to steam the broccoli and add that. Then I would have starch, protein, oil, and veggies, but I used up the yam already and didn’t feel like going out. Still, that would be a good addition.
*I have a cut-proof glove, so I shred fearlessly and end up using the V-Slicer often.
UPDATE: Added half an apple, diced; a handful of pitted Kalamata olives, cut in half; and juice of half a Meyer lemon. Extremely nice.
