This is the third weekend in a row where I haven’t done a meal plan OR a decent grocery shop, so I was spinning the wheel coming up with lunch today!
I had leftover salad from last night’s dinner, so I decided that would be my base. I had cooked taco meat, which gave me the idea for the taco salad – and I mixed 5 tablespoons of my homemade salsa with 2 tablespoons light ranch for my dressing – and threw on a bunch of pickled jalapenos to kick it up a notch.
I bought some apples last week for a client that was in the office – since he left I raided the fruit bowl – this apple is called a Cameo apple, never heard of it but it was so good!
Alright, afternoon break is over – come back tonight for Salisbury Steak with Mushroom Gravy on Cheese Toasts – for under 500 calories!
I LOVE LOVE Cameo apples! They are all over the place in Pittsburgh but since moving to central Virginia I haven’t seen one!!
I’ll have to try the ranch/salsa combo! It sounds awesome!
the dressing combo sounds great!
I HATE not having some kind of plan, but it does make me be more creative, that’s for sure!
I used to make taco salads w/ Boca burgers and do the same dressing (mixed salsa with ranch) and it’s great! mmm
So simple but I’ve never thought of mixing salsa and ranch! I love mixing wasabi and ranch, though, so you’d think it’d be a natural transition. Thanks for the idea!
