Gobs and Gobs of Veggies Salad

So often, I forget how much flavor and satisfaction veggies can provide simply by themselves, without the frills and thrills of other added ingredients!  It certainly doesn’t hurt that fewer ingredients makes a recipe much easier too! 🙂

This thought of “simply veggies” inspired my lunch today.  I decided to just throw together a hodgepodge of different veggies to make a salad, and top it with a drizzle of olive oil, a splash of lemon juice, and a sprinkle of sea salt.  Oh, and I added a bit of goat cheese (I can’t help it, I’m addicted! 😉 ).  It was SO yummy!  I will list the ingredients I used, but really, you can use any veggies you want.  The bigger the variety of veggies, the bigger the variety of flavors and nutrients, making for a really fun, nutritious, and delicious meal!



  • baby spinach
  • cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
  • cucumber, cut into cubes
  • avocado, chopped
  • red bell pepper, cut into short strips
  • red onion, chopped
  • olive oil to drizzle
  • sea salt to sprinkle
  • lemon juice to splash (optional)
  • goat cheese (optional)


  1. Heat a bit of olive or coconut oil in a pan and add the onions and peppers.  Cook lightly (about 3-4 minutes).  Set aside.
  2. On a plate, mix together the spinach, tomatoes, cucumber and avocado.
  3. Top with the onions and peppers.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil, and add sea salt and lemon juice.
  5. Top with goat cheese, if desired.

Simple, but SO good, and beyond good for you!  Enjoy! 🙂
