Quick, Tasty, Healthy and Yum!

Do you ever get home, tired from the days work, and just want something quick to eat? Do you think it has to be boring or wear you out, just fixing it? Well, there are a few things to keep on hand (according to your taste preference) for just this type of occasion. Avocados, shaved Parmesan cheese, blue cheese, red onions, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, lettuce, shrimp, cooked and peeled, roasted or raw pecans, (raw being better for you) Best Foods mayo, cocktail sauce, Lawry's Seasoning Salt, balsamic vinegar and olive oil and a good organic Hearth bread. If you are one of the few that have a Rosemary bush in your yard, all the better! These are for one person. Double or increase for each person. If you are vegetarian, exchange the shrimp for pecans.

Only have 10 minutes? Turn the oven up to 375 degrees. Halfway through making this dish, put a serving of bread in the over to warm, not the microwave! NEVER the microwave!

In bowl big enough to toss, start with the following:

1 Avocado, diced

1 slice of red onion diced

1 cup (couple handfuls) cherry tomatoes, cut up

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1/8 cup olive oil

1/8 Balsamic vinegar

1/2 tsp diced up fresh Rosemary if you have it.

Lawry's seasoning salt and pepper, to taste.

Mix everything up, pour it on a plate and and grab the warm bread out of the oven. Make sure you turn the oven off!

Next recipe:

Place your lettuce on a plate. If you are using baby lettuces, cover the plate. If you are using Iceburg, cut it into shreds and cover the plate. Spread the following over the lettuce:

1 Avocado, diced

1 slice of red onion diced

1/2 cup (one handful) cherry tomatoes, cut up

1/2 cup Shrimp, diced

In a small bowl, mix together 1 heaping tablespoon of mayo with 1/4 cup of cocktail sauce. Add a little seasoning salt and pepper. Drizzle of the top of everything!

Both of these recipes can be altered by changing just a few things. Exchange Parmesan for Blue cheese. Add shrimp to the first one, or add pecans and raisins to either one. Need a little more sustenance, add some cucumber for bulk and taste. Garbanzo beans are a great addition or even Kidney beans.

Now, you have had a very long day, go sit down and enjoy! I have made these recipes many times, and it only takes me 10 minutes or less. Looks beautiful on the plate and is good for you!
