Here’s a fun fact:
One of my favorite snacks when I was growing up was…lettuce.
Lettuce. Iceberg lettuce.
By itself. Well, sometimes with ranch dressing, but usually just plain lettuce.
I remember sitting on the floor in our den with a bowl full of iceberg lettuce leaves and nothing else, snacking on them like a little bunny instead of a 9 year old girl.
And yes, I did have friends. But I don’t think I ever had my afternoon lettuce snacks when they were over to visit. That’s a special kind of weird that you only share with your family.
I am happy to say that my vegetable intake has grown since then and that I eat more than plain iceberg lettuce.
One of my favorite things about the warm weather is that I can bring back my mixing bowl salads!
Whenever I’m putting together a salad for a meal, I raid the fridge for anything and everything that might work.
Monday’s lunch bowl?
Romaine. Red onion. Local chives. Local carrots. Local eggs, hard boiled. Drizzled with a homemade dressing made of olive oil, balsamic, dijon, salt, pepper, and a spoonful of strawberry jam.
So spill it – what’s the weirdest thing you like to snack on? I can’t wait to see if someone can top mine ; )
