In anticipation of the long weekend and some changes coming up, I have been trying to keep my fridge a bit on the empty side. Of course it means I have less to post and I am eating some repeats, but hopefully I will have some fun things to share with you soon. I consider this recipe to be more of a suggestion than something you should strictly follow, but it worked really well for me yesterday. It is simple and makes the best of some great summer produce. It is so fast to make, you can literally put it together before you head out the door to work and have a great meal for a weekday lunch. I'm not going to lie, I used a store bought roasted chicken here because it is something that I can use to help put together a simple and delicious meal in a pinch.
I hope you have a nice long weekend filled with delicious eats. What are your plans for the holiday??
