And now that it is January and we are into a new year and new month it's time to do what everyone does at this time of year...eat healthier. I love making salads with a variety of toppings to make it interesting and more of a complete meal.
It's the "hotel we almost stayed at" last spring. We went to LA for a conference and I didn't look closely enough at the itinerary we were provided with and showed up at the hotel and of course I was all excited and ewwed and ahhed about the gardens, the palms, the black and white portico ceiling and the iconic sign, all before getting out of the taxi! Long story short, we were embarrassed to find out we were at the wrong hotel! We were actually booked at the Beverly Hilton..I knew it was the Beverly something!!
I just tossed together a mixture of salad greens and then topped it with...
2 hard boiled eggs, whites and yolks diced separately
1 avocado diced
My favourite dressing: In a jar with lid shake together,
2 tbsp orange juice
1/2 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp honey
1/3 cup light olive oil
2 tbsp white vinegar
salt and pepper
