I have really been enjoying my venture in being vegetarian.
I know I could never be vegan; although I wish I could, but I could never give up cheese and ice cream.
Quite simply... they make me happy!
In planning meals, I continually assess the leftovers as well as what is in the fridge and pantry.
I despise wasting food... and if it is just a heel of bread, I will cut it up and use it as croutons or breadcrumbs.
So the other night I looked in the fridge and put this salad together and it has ended up being one of the best salads I have ever eaten.
The combination of ingredients may sound strange but they worked!
I will simply list the ingredients and from there you can build your own salad.
Arugula (I LOVE it!)
Oven-roasted beets (leftover from the night before)
A sprinkling of Pear-Infused Balsamic Vinegar
A drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil
