This and That Salad

In our family we usually have vegetables in the fridge ALL of the time, but not always enough to make a main or side dish out of.  What do you do with them? You certainly don’t want to waste those live vitamins!

I’ve done a lot of my Biologic Dental training in Switzerland, and while there, I found an answer! 

I had a delicious salad that we now call “Switzerland Salad”. I’m going to rename it to “This and That Salad” because that’s what it is… a little bit of this and a little bit of that. 

It’s the perfect meal to use up all of those little bits of goodness!

We do have this as a complete meal depending on what we include.  With a piece of toast or a simple broth soup this is a satisfying, healthy and economical meal.

The base of this salad is good lettuce, and we use A LOT. Get a couple of heads of lettuce, tear into bite-size pieces, then spread the lettuce in the middle of the plate. 

The rest of the meal is little “salads” made of whatever veggies you have on hand. I’ll include some of our favorites. These are all simple and are usually made by throwing in whatever we have on hand as seasonings as well.  

The little veggie salads are placed around the center of lettuce and the entire thing is drizzled with good olive oil – or even nothing if there is enough seasoning in the salads.

This entire meal can come together in less than 30 minutes and your family will love it and be well fed!
