I've been in a mood lately with food. I don't know what it is. I barely have anything fresh in my fridge. I have no time to go shopping. It's gonna be a rough week.
Yesterday I whipped this up using what I had on hand. All I could find was an aging cucumber, half of a red onion, non-fat yogurt a few days passed it's date, an open jar of roasted peppers, honey and two missed matched The Laughing Cow Cheese Mini Babybel rounds. Oh and of course my spices. I always have my base spices. 😉
That was all I needed to whip up a pretty tasty salad. I used the yogurt to make a "creamy" dressing and the cucumber, onion, peppers and cheese made a great base!
Here's what I did...
- 1 cucumber
- ¼-1/2 red onion (I'm not the biggest fan of red onion so I went a little light)
- 2 The Laughing Cow Cheese Rounds (I used original and Bonbel--Bonbel was my favorite)
- 3 jarred roasted red pepper + 1 tbsp of roasted red pepper liquid
- 1 tbsp non-fat yogurt
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1-2 pinches of salt
- ½ tbsp honey (10g)
- ½ tbsp water (splash)
Cut the cucumbers. I made small triangles by slicing and then quartering the slices. They were the perfect size for the salad.
Chop the onion, the pepeprs and cube the cheese.
To make the dressing mix together the yogurt, honey and pepper liquid. Add the garlic powder, oregano and pinch of salt. It will be pretty thick. To thin a little add a splash of water, if needed.
Pour the dressing on the salad. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes letting the flavors merge and the salad chill.
What did I do for 20 minutes? Stare at this little guy in awe...
