Easy fig and prosciutto salad
|A salad can be an exciting mix of ingredients already in your refrigerator|
I love salads. They not only give you an easy way to throw back a host of vegetables in one sitting, but they also enable you to clean out the refrigerator, which always leaves you with a feeling of accomplishment.
Last night I went foraging in my refrigerator for ingredients to create a yummy salad to complement my spaghetti and meatball dinner. The resulting dish, if I do say so myself, was delicious. Here's what I put into it:
Fig and prosciutto salad:
- Cleaned baby spinach
- Pumpkin seeds
- Chopped, dried figs
- Quinoa, sprinkled on top
- Feta cheese
- A drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of sea salt
It might have taken me 5 minutes to make this salad. Easy and delicious. Since I'm a perennially lazy chef, that works just fine, thank you very much.
What is your favorite salad combination?
