Salmon Toast & Tomatoes with Mozzarella

30 Mar

This is going to be short and sweet.  Between a new role in my organization, loads of upcoming travel and grad school applications, you can expect the blog hiatus to continue a wee bit longer.  Here’s a lil’ something to satiate you!

As you may know, salmon is a fave on this blog.  One night when I was crammed for time, I made this super fast, healthy and cheap dinner dish! You’ll need a package of lox, goat cheese, whole wheat toast, capers (optional), a few juicy green tomatoes, mozzarella balls and balsamic vinegar.  I got all of these ingredients at Trader Joe’s, who has a small pack of smoked salmon for like $5- total steal! Salmon Toast Salmon Toast

 

Add these items to the grocery store list for this week and enjoy!

Easy Shrimp Salad

17 Dec

I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait to head home for the holidays this weekend.  Family, friends, and FEASTS await! I’m getting antsy just thinking about it.  Alas, there are still two days standing in my way, and I think I might as well get some nutrition in now.  This shrimp salad is cheap, easy and deliciously satisfying.

You’ll need a tomato, 1 ball of mozzarella, spinach, avocado, lemon, olive oil, and 1 package peeled frozen shrimp.  Simply cook the shrimp in a pan on the stove top, chop up the tomato, mozzarella, and avocado, and toss on a bed of spinach.  For a super light dressing, drizzle on olive oil and squeeze half a lemon’s worth of juice.  Add on any other salad components you like!

Petite Pizzas

9 Sep

Happy Monday eve!  This is going to be a quick one because I’m exhausted.  But before beauty rest comes this post– quick, simple, healthy, and creative.  Have 20 minutes on a weeknight?  Make petite pizzas! You’ll need some basics, and then can have some fun with whatever ingredients you have around.  I used whole wheat English Muffins, some leftover tomato sauce, and Mozzarella and Colby Jack cheese for my basics.  Then made two kinds of petite pizzas because variety is the spice of life, amirite?  One was prosciutto, mozzarella, and sauteed garlic spinach.  The second was a fried runny egg, cherry tomatoes, Colby Jack cheese, and chives.  DELISH.

I’m not usually a fan of the runny egg, but oy was it just the right amount of gooey to soak up into the muffin.  Pair with some white wine, a candle, and Monday Night Football, and you have yourself a treat.
