Broccoli, Artichoke and Roasted Pepper Salad with red onion and Toasted pita wedges
This salad came together quickly one day when my pantry and fridge were nearly bare. I searched the shelves and came up with this little gem of a salad. Now, I make sure to keep these ingredients on hand.
Add in these veggies in any combo to suit your tastes about 3-4ish cups total: (I do like a big salad)
Frozen chopped broccoli (fresh is always great, but we are talking fast from the pantry/freezer here.)
Marinated Artichoke hearts drained 1 tbsp marinade reserved.
Roasted red peppers from a jar, drained well
Red onion, raw (or as pictured I had roasted red onion from a previous meal)
Toss veggies together with 1 Tbsp of artichoke marinade, 1-2 tbsp good quality balsamic vinegar, freshly ground salt and pepper.
Pita wedges go well with this. I really really like pita wedges. My favorite is this https://www.josephsbakery.com/shop/flax-oat-bran-whole-wheat-pita-bread.html. These are also available at BJ’s club and Walmart.
To make this a full meal, top with tuna or salmon from a single serve pouch, or leftover protein from last nights dinner. (I have a habit of preparing extra protein and veggies to use for quick meals)
