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!

Smoked Salmon Toast Snack

13 Nov

Happy Wednesday and a belated Happy Veterans Day! How many of you fellow DCers made it to The Concert for Valor on the Mall last night? Thousands of people packed themselves in front of our nation’s capitol to celebrate all veterans, active duty service members, and their families in honor of their monumental courage and sacrifice.  In between performances by Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, The Black Keys, Dave Grohl, The Zac Brown Band, Carrie Underwood, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Rihanna and Eminem, the jumbotrons broadcast awe-inspiring stories about these veterans, about what they have achieved, and the incredible obstacles they have overcome.  These veterans were in the audience, getting the standing ovation that they deserve.  It was almost surreal to witness this directly in front of the Capitol building, and no one could have asked for a more beautiful November night.  My friend and I, both lucky to have the day off, parked ourselves on the Mall very early in the afternoon to secure a great viewing spot and enjoy what was undoubtedly one of our last 70 degree days in DC.  I doubt you’re surprised at this point that I made sure to bring snacks.  What I decided upon is a recipe idea I stole from a great friend at my August birthday gathering, and all you need is four ingredients!  Stop by Trader Joe’s and pick up:

  • Sliced loaf of Whole Wheat bread
  • One avocado
  • Small package of herb goat cheese
  • Small package of smoked salmon ($7.99 and the most expensive item)

Goat Cheese, Smoked Salmon, and Avocado Toast on Whole Wheat Bread

Toast the bread and spread on the goodness! The goat cheese adds an awesome zing under the smoothness of the salmon, and it’s a snack full of protein and good-for-you fat so it will tide you over (even while you wait for five hours on the National Mall).  Tried and true success!
