Well Christmas is over, and my pants are a bit tight! I definitely had a bit too many pot pies, baguettes covered in pate and cheeses, mashed potatoes, and other heavy beige things. Now I'm trying to find some healthier fare that will still be filling enough for winter lunches and dinners. What's your favorite meal for when you desperately need something fresh?
As for me, I just threw together some garbanzo beans, julienned red bell pepper and red onion, sliced cucumber, and quartered vine-ripened tomatoes. Dress with extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, and sheep's milk feta. Salt to taste, and it's actually a pretty great lunch.
