Dontcha just love when something works? I mean, when it works so well, you get to do it over and over again?!
This happened last night while making dinner. Vegan mac and cheese, baked all hot and bubbly… waitin on my Plan B Box for fresh veggies to make a side salad… but dinner time was fast approaching and the ice had the delivery truck later than normal. Okay, into the fridge to see what I can find – A yellow carrot, A zucchini and half a red onion. Didn’t look like much when I put it on my counter. So, how do you make little ingredients go farther? Make them little!!
Match Stick Salad:
- 1 zucchini
- 1 carrot
- red onion
Grate selected veggies on mandolin, toss in some chopped spinach or parsley, add dressing of choice (I used The BEST EVER Lemon Dressing), mix and serve.
My kids LOVED this salad. And BOTH of them say they “hate” zucchini! Guess they thought it was cucumber? Shhhhh….. don’t tell them! They liked it so much infact, I used this very same idea to make them lunch today!
Using your handy dandy mandolin, grate veggies of choice. I used same as above and added yellow pepper. Place spinach tortilla on counter, wipe with favorite dressing (I used Caesar), place veggies in row, (add cheese if you want), and roll! Super easy and super yummy!
Gotta love a two-fer.
