THIS FAT OLD LADY’S ALL ABOUT ME MONDAY – SOMETIMES YOU JUST DON’T WANT TO COOK

Yes, I know, I already announced that Fall has arrived.

But that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a big ass salad for dinner on a night you just don’t feel like firing up the stove or oven.

And this time, I tried a new recipe – for me a really different kind of salad.

I did change a couple of things.

Because it was for dinner, I added cubed chicken.

And while the recipe calls for Ranch dressing, I decided to use our favorites – Bill got Blue Cheese and I got French.

I really had no idea how I was going to like a lettuce-free salad.

I am pretty infamous for having strict rules about foods – no fish soup; no pineapple on pizza, no capers on anything (capers is, imho, Italian for dried up boogers), no okra ever (it’s snot with seeds), etc.

But this was really good.

And I feel so self-righteously healthy and shit.

Nah – not really.

I like all kinds of food and believe there is not good food or bad food – just food.

And this happened to be some delicious food – my favorite kind!

CAULIFLOWER CASHEW SALAD
1 med. head cauliflower broken into (small) florets

4 med. carrots, halved and thinly sliced

1 C frozen peas, thawed

8 oz. ranch salad dressing

½ C cashews

Opt:  Cubed chicken

In a serving bowl, combine the cauliflower, carrots and peas.  Drizzle with dressing, toss to coat.  Cover and refrigerate until chilled.  Just before serving stir in cashews.

  1. It is not actually Fall until the 23rd, though our weather here is gorgeous & in the upper 60’s most days. Besides, you live in California. WHAT fall? 🙂
