Paleo Recipe :: Super Simple Sunday Salad

If you’re looking for a quick, easy Paleo recipe for a breakfast, lunch, or dinner salad, then this is it.

It was late Sunday morning and I wanted something good for me.

So…here it is.

CONFESSION:  I used lettuce-in-a-bag for this one.

It doesn’t get any easier than that.

All by itself, lettuce-in-a-bag (or plastic container) is pretty darned boring.

So…add some chopped veggies, a hard-boiled egg, and few other flavors and you’re all set.

Oh, and don’t forget the oil + vinegar dressing.

Because an undressed salad is a sad, sad thing.

 

 

The What

  • 2 cups lettuce
  • 1/4 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 hard-boiled egg, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 large Roma tomato, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sunflower kernels
  • 1/2 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1 tablespoon oil + vinegar salad dressing
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 1 large pinch of coarse black pepper

 

The How

  1. Add lettuce, eggs, vegetables, and sunflower kernels to a large mixing bowl.
  2. Add the salt, pepper, and salad dressing.  Toss until all ingredients have the beautiful sheen of the oil + vinegar dressing.
  3. Plate up and enjoy!

This recipe makes enough for two nice-sized salads.

You could share it with someone, or…pack up half and have it later.

It makes a great addition to your lunch bag.

Make it great.

Make it paleo.

Like this morning.

I take Tall Child to school every morning on my way to work. I did the same thing for College Kid back in the day. But things are different.

The old saying “if you fail to plan, you plan to fail” is certainly apropos when it comes to a food plan.

ANY food plan.

I don’t know about you, but it’s a challenge sometimes to stay engaged in my Paleo food plan. It’s not because I don’t like it – I LOVE the food and how it makes me feel – it’s just the time and energy required to stay on top of it.

Hey, (in case you’ve wondered) I’ve fallen off the wagon many times.
