Simple Salad

Sometimes you can create pretty interesting combinations just by trolling through the fridge for random odds and ends. For example, the other night I made a surprisingly delicious salad of sliced cucumber, blood orange supremes, and basil.



Just toss together the above ingredients, along with some olive oil, salt, and lemon juice if you need extra acidity. I served it with SPICY chicken and the flavors were very refreshing. I would've subbed mint for basil but it's about negative 500 degrees right now and there was no chance I was going back outside just to spend $3 on mint.

LOL! Negative 500 degrees? I hear you. It surely feels like it.

Love your salad. Will have to try it.
