DAY 1 WARM TOMATO,CUCUMBER & MUSHROOM SALAD

December 4, 2011

A fresh and lively salad that contains 3 of your daily 5 vegetables.

INGREDIENTS

Mushrooms 0.079 kg        0.83

Pasta Bows 500g                1.00

Continental Cucumber  1  0.87

Truss Tomato 1                     0.76

Balsamic Salad Dressing   2.59  (don’t worry we will be using it again)

TOTAL COST                          $6.05 

Breakfast – 1 banana                 50c

Lunch –  1 apple & banana   1.00

TOTAL FOR THE DAY      $7.55    

METHOD

1.  Place 1 cup of pasta bows in a pot of boiling water.  Cook uncovered for 13 minutes or until al dente. (still some resistance if you bite into it.)

2.  While the pasta is boiling chop up tomato into small chunks; the mushroom into thin slices, then halve the slices and slice the cucumber and then chop each slice into halves.

3.  Drain the pasta in a colander and then place in a bowl with 4 tbspsn of balsamic vinegar salad dressing.

4.  Mix the vegetables into the pasta.  Season with freshly ground black pepper and a small amount of salt.

Makes 2 servings.

Substitutions:  You will note that you can save considerably on this dish if you substitute a simple oil and vinegar dressing for the balsamic dressing.  If you don’t already have the oil and vinegar however it is often better economy to buy the dressing already made up.

 Additions:  You can add some finely chopped red onion and some cubed feta cheese if you wish.
