Take That Swiftsure!

Remember my less than impressive salad from last night? Well, it left me craving a decent dinner salad, so that’s what was on the menu tonight!

I knew I didn’t want any of the salad dressings left in my fridge, so I grabbed a few things, and made my own creamy ranch style dressing.

I stirred together plain non-fat yogurt, low-fat sour cream, dijon mustard, salt, pepper, dill, chives, onion, and garlic powder. It turned out pretty good for on-the-fly dressing making!

Then it was time to build the salad. I went with a seafood theme, similar to last night, but mine was definitely kicked up multiple notches.

I started with a bed of red leaf lettuce tossed in my homemade dressing, then topped it with a grilled salmon burger, corn, peas, sheep’s milk feta (the best!), and a drizzle of the remaining dressing.

Ain’t no skimping on salad here!

Although not really the same flavour profile as the salad last night, infinitely more satisfying. And that bad boy used less than $12 worth of ingredients for sure!

Eventually I made my way to the gym for some quality time with the stairclimber and a Rolling Stone magazine. I also found some time to watch the finale of Canada’s Next Top Model (my fave won! Woot!). That obviously lead into evening snack time.

A sliced up granny smith apple with Peanut Butter & Co. Cinnamon Raisin Swirl for dipping fun. Definitely a combination that never gets old.

I have plans to bike to work tomorrow, so I think I should get myself into bed. Night everyone!

    Your salad looks worthy of the $12 price tag! I love that ranch recipe! I haven’t had ranch dressing in ages.
