Lazy Protein Salad | Recipe
What better description is there than a simple one? This is a delicious combination of healthy fats (ooh enticing) and zingy spices (ahhh sexy!)
I would bet my new leopard print slides that I am not even close to the first person who thought this up (in fact I'm pretty sure I lifted some version of this from a Gwyneth Paltrow cookbook) but it never hurts to have a refresher on basic deliciousness.
Hardboil eggs for 11 minutes in boiling water, 2 per salad/person, then plunge into an ice bath while you prepare the rest of this "salad."
Dice up 1/2 - 1 avocado per salad, depending on how caloric you want to get.
Slice cherry or grape tomatoes in half, or dice up a delicious roma or heirloom tomato if your knife is sharp enough.
Top with a few good glugs of olive oil from your favorite brand (it's worth it to use the nice stuff in salads or as a dressing, when you'll taste the difference!), or about 2 tablespoons worth. Splash a bit of lemon juice or rice vinegar (about 2 teaspoons, or more to taste) and some salt and pepper on top.
You could also add a few drizzles of honey and red pepper flakes, or some fancier herbs like a tiny pinch of herbes de provence or dill. Really make this your own! Because, let's be honest, it's 3 ingredients otherwise. What are we doing here.
