Today is Meatless Monday, and I’ve been toying around with the idea of turning my favorite salads into casseroles. After all, I’ve turned our favorite meals like Pizza into salads and soups, so why not do the reverse when the weather turns nippy.
The first salad up on the block is my Mango Tango Salad. Instead of using mangoes I changed it up to apples. I kept the avocado. I added some sweet potatoes, some brown rice, and organic Greek yogurt. Then I removed the cilantro and the vinegar. Spiced it up with some cumin, habanero pepper and some salt.
Voila a totally new meal: AvoApple Bake
Turning our favorite salad into other dishes is nothing new but maybe with some imagination we can turn our lives around just by playing with our food and turning our palates onto new tastes and new horizons. Turn your favorite salad into a casserole!
