Yay! It is summer time, prime time for yummy cold salads with fresh straight out of the garden/store/farmers market veggies and fruits. Pair warm weather fruits and veggies like these with any sort of protein with a yummy salad for lunch or dinner. No cafe or restaurant needed just a grill/bbq and some yummy ingredients and yes there is real meat in this salad... hardy chunks of flavorful smoky grilled chicken sausage.
Prep Time: 5-7 minutes
Cooking Time: Depending on your sausage 5 -15 minutes
1 apple chicken sausage, grilled*
1 apple washed and coarsely chopped (left peel on for texture and more nutrients)
1/2 Tbs olive oil drizzled over the top
1/2 of an avocado, sliced & diced
1/4-1/2 of a cucumber chopped (to taste)
1/2 chopped roma tomato
Sprinkle of salt and pepper
*Note: my sausage was already cooked - so I grilled it approx 5 minutes ea side on medium low to add the smoky flavor and heat it through for that hot cold contrast I love.
Cook, Toss, & Eat.
Happy Simple Real Food
Enjoy your family & friends this memorial day weekend!
