We'll get to the food in a minute, but first, I need to say just one thing:
GO HEELS! BEAT dook!
But I digress. Harvest salad - a must-make. Perfect for Tuesday Night Salad Night because it's filling but still light so as not to weigh me down after yoga. It's perfectly appropriate for regular-food-Thursdays. And it's man-approved. B really likes this salad. I think it's the bacon. How can you not love bacon?
This UNC alum has a game to watch, so I'll leave you here with the recipe (which is an adaptation of this). And I promised you a song, so I'll also leave you with this:
Hark the sound of Tar Heel voices
ringing clear and true,
singing Carolina's praises,
Hail to the brightest star of all,
clear its radiance shine
Carolina, priceless gem,
receive all praises thine.
I'm a Tar Heel born
I'm a Tar Heel bred
and when I die
I'm a Tar Heel dead
So it's rah-rah Caro-lina-lina
GO TO HELL, DOOK!
Harvest Moon Salad
Lettuce (we generally use mixed greens, or whatever's on hand)
grilled chicken, diced
1-2 fresh pears, chopped
chopped pecans (walnuts work well in a pinch)
bacon, cooked crispy and then crumbled
feta cheese (sometimes we use blue cheese, depending on what we've got)
Poppy seed salad dressing
Light balsamic vinaigrette dressing
Mix 1 part balsamic vinaigrette to 3 parts poppy seed dressing. Toss well with ingredients. Amount of ingredients can be left up to your tastes or to whatever you have around the house.
Cheer for the Tar Heels.
