Yummy Summer Salad!

on July 10, 2011


We picked up some strawberries at the farmers’ market today and they were not as good as the ones we found yesterday. Bummer.

Thinking quick, I chopped them up with a crunchy Japanese cucumber then doused them with my secret ingredient, Tajin. Discovered by my mom at Food 4 Less, Tajin is a blend of chili peppers, lemon juice, and salt that adds a spicy, zingy kick to fruits & vegetables.

I put the mixture in the freezer to chill while I chopped up a head of Romaine lettuce. I tossed everything together then drizzled it with some balsamic vinaigrette….. Delicious!!

Bottom line: A delicious and healthy way to make up for the cinnamon roll consumed for breakfast.
