It's lunch time. There are no leftovers for me from dinner last night. What should I make?
There are half an onion, half a green pepper, and half a red pepper all staring at me in the fridge.
And cream cheese... and fresh tomatoes... hmmm...
RECIPE: Grilled Salad with Cream Cheese
half a small onion, sliced
one bell pepper, sliced or chopped
1 tomato, diced
1 dollop low fat cream cheese
> sauté the onion and pepper in a skillet
> once caramelized, pour into bowl
> add tomatoes, cream cheese, and parsley or cilantro garnish
> season to taste and enjoy!!
There are many variation options for this recipe; here are a few that popped to mind:
This would also be amazing with leftover grilled chicken, fish, or beef in place of the cream cheese.
Add to a bun with leftover steak, melt some mozzarella over the top, and drizzle with garlic mayo, hello Philly Cheese Steak!!
Without the cream cheese, this is a great vegetable side dish with very little work - fresh and grilled!
