cheese, pepper and pecan salad

Easy salad- especially if you cut a bunch of cheese and pepper hearts out and keep them in a baggy in your fridge :-) The tough part, if we can all it that, is getting the cutters out, so you might as well cut a bunch, and use them up!

This salad is organic baby romaine, red pepper, chopped pecans, and cheddar cheese. You can see a packet of Drew's balsamic vinegar dressing, which will be very tasty on this.

I also sent a Think organic cherry bar, some cheese its, some blueberries, and an organic fruit leather.

This salad is packed in a large Lunchbot tin.

Raita roll with blueberries and couscous

I'm trying to use up the raita. Today I spread lavosh with raita and topped it with lots of chopped red pepper, green onions, black olives and baby lettuce- I ground some fresh black pepper on before I rolled the bread up. It's in the blue section of the bento with black olives.

In the green section of the bento you see couscous, organic blueberries, and french macaroons (pistachio, orange and rose flavored).

This was pretty tasty, and shockingly easy- especially since I didn't have to make the macaroons- Costco had them :-) The SF Farmer's market has a bakery that carries French macaroons, and I've bought them at Bouchon, and now Trader Joes carries frozen ones (but only in vanilla and chocolate).

Hearts, Hummus and Raita

Lavosh bread with hummus and raita on it- layered with baby lettuce, chopped red peppers and chopped black olives- and a light dusting of finely chopped green onions and fresh ground pepper.

To the right, you see a small salad with red pepper hearts.
