Simple & Quick Fresh Vegetable Salad – Lunch For One


Being the wife of an expatriate living abroad, I end up eating lunch alone at least 5 days a week. Mostly, I eat leftovers – cooking extra dinner and keeping it for the next day. But that gets boring after a while, you know?! So I decided to come up with a couple of simple meals that are easy, interesting and tasty! Today, I made a simple salad that I ate with a piece of crusty French bread – simple and filling.

  • Lemon juice – 1 tbsp
  • Salt – 1/2 tsp

  1.  Mix all the dressing ingredients in a bowl and stir well.
  2. Add the chopped vegetables and toss to coat them with the dressing.

Fresh Vegetable Salads


You can change up this salad to your taste – add any veggies that you like or a cheese of your choice. You can also pair it with something other than bread – a soup or pasta for example. Let me know if you try it! 🙂
