Best I Could Do (And It Wasn't So Bad)

This is not the beginnings of a compost heap.  It is a salad.

This is how I live right now, on arugula and radishes and sometimes snap peas.  But don't feel too sorry for me, this simple thing is actually based on a recipe for radishes with maldon salt, parmesan, basil and arugula dressed with lemon juice and olive oil from A Girl and Her Pig.  Only difference: I went super easy on the parmesan cheese and didn't have fresh basil (which the recipe says is absolutely necessary to the salad . . . oh well) and shook some on instead.  End result: Not so bad.  Good, in fact.  Probably great with the right amount of cheese and fresh basil.  I'm going to do this one again, someday.

If you want to go all mediterranean on your salad, substitute the radishes and snap peas with avocado and cannellini beans and a shake of oregano. Its been my main-stay lunch this week.
