Summer Dinner Salad July 16, 2015

Filed under: Cooking,guides — misscilicia @ 7:52 pm


This is a hearty and filling meal for a hot summer day, and requires little cooking. The topping makes this a complete meal.

First prepare your salad greens and veggies, then make the topping.


Olive oil

White wine, 1/4 cup, optional

Tempeh-about ¼ package, cut into small cubes

Garlic to taste

Onion, about a ¼, thinly sliced

Mushrooms-2 or 3, sliced

Make your usual veggie salad and dress with a bit of vinegar or your favorite dressing–I used poppy seed dressing this time–while heating up a frying pan with about a tablespoon of olive oil.

When the oil is hot, add the tempeh. Sautee until browned on each side, about 5 minutes. Add onion and sauté a few minutes more adding wine, if desired, then add garlic and mushrooms. Cook a few more minutes until down. Pour the hot topping over the green salad to slightly wilt it.
