My Favorite Summer Meal of 2016 - Quick & Easy!

Anyone who knows me knows that I am NOT a cook. I eat to live, and my favorite kitchen tool is the microwave. Consequently I do a lot of "put together" meals that can usually be fixed in 5-10 minutes, without getting my hands too dirty. Every so often, I stumble on some combination that is so quick, so cheap, and so good - I just have share it. This summer of 2016, I stumbled upon this salad dish that is so good it's become my staple meal:

This salad uses just a few simple ingredients:
  • Cooked rice, brown or white
  • Cooked, diced chicken or other meat - or try using nuts such as pistachios if you want a vegetarian meal
  • Chopped fresh veggies
  • Creamy bottled salad dressing
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Here are the steps:

1. Pile the meat on top of the rice and heat in the microwave for a minute or two
2. Top with a handful of chopped raw veggies
3. Top with salad dressing and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
Add salt & pepper to taste, and dig in!

And there you have it - quick and tasty. I've made this meal with all different kinds of  meat, including sausage, ham, bratwurst, Canadian bacon, and even fish (Trader Joe's Salmon burgers are perfect!). In fact, the rice, veggies, and salad dressing (TJ's Greek Feta Dressing) are all from Trader Joe's, too. It's not that I'm especially fancy, it's just that Trader Joe's is my closest place for grocery shopping! Yes, I consider myself lucky - and I also consider myself lucky to have stumbled on such a tasty way to feed myself during this long, hot summer. Not bad for someone who is NOT a cook! :)
