Spring mix

Make this salad with ingredients you have in your pantry and fridge.


~ 1 cup of pasta (your choice)

~ half of a medium green pepper (bell pepper)

~ 1 big tomato 🍅

~ scallions (spring onions)

~ a handful of well rinsed spring mix (arugula, spinach, lettuce 🥬 etc)

~ black pepper

~ herbs (optional )

~ celery salt 🧂 (optional).

You can add cheese 🧀, eggs 🥚, turkey 🦃 or anything else you want.

Rinse and cut up your veggies 🌶, cook macaroni with a handful of the peppers and scallions for more flavor. Add any seasoning of choice you want or salad dressing. And voila! That’s all she wrote😉 😘.

If you are like me this is enough for 3-4 servings but if you are a big salad eater then it will make 1-2 servings for you.

And all this can be achieved for less than a dollar if you have most of these in your fridge / pantry.
