What's in the Fridge Salad


I was too tired to stop at the store on the way home from work, and the kitchen was too hot to cook hot food, anyway.

So I made a great dinner salad with what I had in the fridge.
  • Three slices of bacon, fried crisp and drained
  • Iceberg lettuce, broken into bite-sized pieces
  • Baby salad greens
  • Savoy cabbage, shredded
  • Cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • Sugar snap peas, blanched for 30 seconds in boiling water, drained and halved
  • Mozzarella cheese, cubed
  • 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon creme fraiche
  • Juice of one lime
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped basil
  • salt, pepper, pinch of cayenne
Salad: Mix lettuces and shredded cabbage on platter. Evenly distribute quartered cherry tomatoes, mozzarella cubes and snap peas on top. Top with crumbled bacon.

Dressing: Mix mayonnaise, creme fraiche, lime juice, sugar, and basil. Add water by 1/2 teaspoon if needed to thin consistency. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne.

Serve
