I like the idea  of veggie platters but generally scoff at crudités. It seems like the kind of thing that person who’s always on a diet brings to the party just to make everyone else feel bad. If you’ve ever talked about how a carrot stick is a special treat because it has sooo much sugar while I’m eating a burger, I’m probably judging you.  If we’re going to make an effort to be healthy, lets at least make it interesting.

Brought a beautiful salad for lunch today only to find that my homemade garlic lime vinaigrette was kind of cloudy and funky looking after a weekend in my sweltering office.

  • Lemon or lime juice – snag those leftover slices of lemon for tea that you always have because that one dude doesn’t drink coffee.
  • Salt to taste

Yummo!

Combine in a coffee cup – hey look, you found a new use for those little plastic stirrers! Pour over salad of choice and enjoy.

This won’t be in heavy rotation but it’s nice to know that I can have semi-homemade even when i’m not at home.
