- Summer Squash
- Lettuce Little Gem (swapped for more chard)
- Baby Broccoli
Tonight's dinner continued the quest to work through the inventory. Lettuce, not a favorite around here, was the main target. Based on a lunch I had at work this week, we made a lettuce / noodle salad. In addition to the red leaf lettuce, we made our way through a navel orange, smoked tofu, baby carrots, mint, cilantro, and a box of spelt udon.
Orange-Sesame Noodle SaladToss all ingredients together and serve! I'd give this a 6 out of 10 as is. If we were to try it again, we'd switch to some type of Vietnamese peanut sauce and neutral tofu.
