Don't vegetarians just eat salad?

Of course! Just as often as the next person. For me, making a salad is a good way to clean out the fridge.

Tonight we ate salads with leftover fresh veggies from the fridge in anticipation of going to The Pub to play trivia, have some beers, and possibly eat some fries. Turns out we got a half order of fried pickles instead, but that's okay.

We've been eating sandwiches recently with the plenitude of fresh veggies available, especially ripe homegrown tomatoes. Throw in some peppers, cucumbers, and sprouts and you're good to go! This is an at-home variety of the Subway sandwich, also known as the road-tripping vegetarian's fallback. It's a tasty sandwich, but certainly a last resort unless you're dying to take your chances on the pre-sliced veggies waiting for you in the salad bar fridge.

Anyway, after a few sandwiches, you'll find yourself with lots of veggies left over. Toss in some beans or croutons (or tortilla chips!) and if you're feeling adventurous, BacO's are vegetarian. Ick.

Yes, iceberg lettuce. Red onions and green bell peppers. Alfafa sprouts and diced cucumbers.

For me: canned black olives, tomatoes, and a sprinkle of cheese.

Beats the wimpy garden salad by a mile!
