First place winner of the 2009 Craze-E contest. I created this simple yet sophisticated salad in the spirit of Mark Bittman's minimalist column in the NY Times. To dress up the presentation (though it's quite pretty as is), serve over a bed of greens. If you want to make it low calorie, replace the apple cider vinegar, sugar, and olive oil with one ingredient: a good balsamic vinegar.
Second place winner in the 2009 Craze-E Contest. Part BLT, part cobb salad, this meal in a bowl combines the best of both. I almost called it Blobb Salad or CobBLT, but neither sounded very appetizing--LOL!
This salad is easy to put together and tastes delicious. Don't let the list of ingredients fool you - they are items that you typically have on hand. In the salad, the combination of radishes, strawberries and avocado are a mixture of complimentary tastes and textures. Personally, I don't toss salads with the toppings because the toppings always seem to fall to the bottom of the bowl and you miss out on them.
Egg salad dotted with peas, scallions, red bell peppers. Spiced with a creamy chipotle dressing. layered into a wrap with thinly sliced tomatoes, pepperoni and greens. All rolled up and enjoyed by all on the run or packed up for a picnic in the park.
