garbage bowl of vegetables

i was recently reading a health and food blog that used the phrase "garbage bowl of vegetables" and for whatever reason it stuck with me. i mean, who says that? health nuts, that's who. i'll take one garbage bowl of vegetables, please. tempeh fries on the side. 

i'm no health nut. i definitely eat lots of fresh fruits and veggies and all that, but my cravings are a little more near the top of the food pyramid if you know what i mean. i'll take one garbage bowl of brownies with brownies on the side, extra hot fudge, make it snappy. 

i don't know why, but the mental picture made me go crazy hungry for the kind of salad that consists of every kind of vegetable you can fit into a bowl and still have room for feta on top. 

so i went shopping in the produce department.

green pepper
chick peas
black olives
sugar snap peas
baked chicken breast
dressing of your choice (i use light italian)


wash things. chop things. throw em in a bowl. sprinkle with feta. add some dressing. yumyumyum.

the beautiful thing about this salad is that you can add whatever vegetables you want and leave out the ones you don't have a taste for. beets would be a good addition, and they would add a really pretty color. radishes and tomatoes, too. i use green peppers because they're generally cheaper than red, orange, and yellow, but, if you have an extra $2 to spare, spring for the sweet, colorful ones.

this salad is kind of a new obsession. i'm weird. you can say it. it would be one of the nicer words people have used to describe me.
