Lunch was on the run today and for the first time in too long I was organized enough to bring a nutritious lunch with me. It was much tastier than the take-out salads I usually get when I’m out and about and more frugal too.
For my appetizer I packed butter lettuce “wraps” stuffed with red bell pepper bean pate. Then I enjoyed a salad of mixed lettuce leaves, cherry tomatoes, carrot medallions, sliced red pepper and pumpkin seeds with a slice of juicy Amalfi lemon to squeeze over as a dressing. For dessert a strawberry banana creamy pudding and a sweetly-tart Moro blood orange. I can’t get enough of these blood oranges at the moment they are so delicious with a beautiful ruby red flesh.
