Proscuitto Caprese Salad + WWWP5K

Yesterday in an attempt to detox from all of the fish n’ chips and beer consumed in London, I created this salad.  It is fresh, filling, and it tastes great! I made it again for lunch today and I’m looking forward to it. Gotta love days that you look forward to your lunch!

Proscuitto Caprese Salad

Ingredients:

  • Greens of your choice (I used Spring Mix with Herbs, and it added a little extra flavor dimension)
  • 1 roma tomato, diced
  • 1 slice of fresh mozzarella, diced (approx 1/5 of the cheese ball below)
  • 2 slices Proscuitto
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • drizzle of olive oil & balsamic vinegar

After work I hit the road around our neighborhood for the Automatic Worldwide WP 5k 2015.  I came across this blogger challenge yesterday afternoon and thought it was such a great idea.  I was also pretty happy with my time considering I hadn’t run in a week and ate all the food in London.

Don’t mind the time on my Fitbit… I started timing my workout and then didn’t leave the house for about 45 mins. (And yes, I’m that obsessed weirdo wearing both a Garmin and a Fitbit just to go for a short run.)

Dinner was a pan fried chicken sandwich topped with mayo, tomato, red onion, & baby spinach.  And since it’s getting cold out and we needed some comfort food, we paired it with my favorite Trader Joe’s soup.

Thanks for reading and have a great Tuesday!
