Easy Rainy Day Salad

Easy Rainy Day Salad

When it’s cold and blustery outside, I want to wrap up in a blanket and eat a huge pile of mashed potatoes or some other mass carbo-laden feast. I know I won’t feel good about myself after a comfort binge, but it’s so cold outside! (whine)

However, my heart won the battle vs. my brain in today’s frigid rainstorm. Fresh veggies sliced with a Mandoline with a little impromptu dressing of lemon juice, rice vinegar and balsamic reduction sauce and my tastebuds gleely leapt as if it were a hot summer’s day.  This mandoline is super easy to use and comes with several blades to pop-in and adjust the cut sizes and shapes. It’s also available on Amazon Prime.
