Salad of the gods: Romaine, Orange, Feta, Almonds in a Honey Balsamic Vinaigrette

In an effort to avoid the grocery store and use up my CSA from last week, I quickly threw together this salad for lunch. Upon the first bite I realized:

This salad is amazeballs!!!!

If you find that term annoying then substitute any non-cloying superlative in its place that means “rocktastic” rather than “sucktastic.”

It’s super stellar qualities were further elevated by the ease with which I threw it all together.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 head romaine lettuce
  • 1 orange
  • 1/4 Cup almonds
  • Feta Cheese
  • Honey
  • Balsamic vinegar

Directions:

  1. Wash and chop up the romaine. Stick it in a bowl.
  2. Roughly chop the almonds. Throw them on top of the lettuce.
  3. Peel the orange. Cut each section into bite size pieces (I cut it into three pieces each). Throw the orange bits on top of the almond bits.
  4. Squeeze a zig zag of honey across the top of the salad.
  5. Sprinkle some feta on top.
  6. Drizzle a little balsamic vinegar on the salad.
  7. Stick a fork in it and shovel into mouth. Feel the “OMG amazeballs” love.
