What’s for lunch?

June 28, 2012

Like a lot of people I’ve been eating less and less red meat and chicken these days. So, then, what’s for lunch? Today I’ve whipped up a substantial salad that is fresh and satisfying and best of all…simple. Starting with a base of Trader Joe’s Brown rice medley ( which includes black barley and daikon radish seeds ) I’ve added  red bell pepper, green onion, sugar snap peas and toasted walnuts and dressed it with my “go to” vinaigrette of olive oil and lemon juice with a touch of garlic. While your grains are cooling to room temp you can prep your vegetables and mix up your dressing. The best part of this salad it the texture…C R U N C H Y…from the daikon seeds to the sugar snaps to the celery to the walnuts. OK…now I’m hungry. Is it time to break yet?

    that sounds (and looks) delicious … I’ll have to give it a try. First, I will need to find the brown rice medley (or make my own) … thanks for posting!


  2. I love the mix of colors, a sign of a good, healthy meal. I am going to make this on Sunday. Tomorrow is already booked.
