On Groundhog Day it seems only appropriate to share with you again a recipe I've shared before. Though I've not shared it here (I don't think!); this originated at FoodLush. I've been going back to it a lot lately, and man. It's just so good. Fresh and bright and light and goes with everything. Everything I like, anyway.
I've been using this orange poppyseed vinaigrette a lot for lunches, mixing it into quinoa, greens, and often quinoa and greens. To that base I add some type of protein (salmon burger or salmon burger or leftover chicken or sausage and/or roasted chickpeas), veggies (cucumber is my go-to fro its fresh crunch, along with that kale salad from Costco that I love, whose base is the same as the Cruciferous Crunch from Trader Joe's), feta, maybe some nuts or avocado, maybe some craisins. Maybe other fruit and veggies. The possibilities are endless, and the textures seem so, too.
Big bowls of food with a little bit of everything are so satisfying to me, and food ruts can be so easy to fall into. This dressing is a good reminder that changing it up can be as simple as making something old new again. It's also a good reminder that nothing beats a homemade dressing and a cheap bag of produce from Trader Joe's. Sorry, Costco.
What are you eating lately that you can't get enough of?
