Leftover arugala from your Arugala, Diced Dates and Blue Cheese salad? Lightbulb moment: I wish I thought of eating my salad in pizza form before. Recipe adapted from Gourmet Made Simple (Don’t you love when you rediscover an old cookbook fave?)
I do envision myself baking my own dough one day but I had just returned from Barry’s Boot Camp so today was not that day. I used Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat.
While the crust is going (10-12 minutes), you can whip up the hummus.Blend the following: 1 15 oz can chickpeas, rinsed and drained 2 tbsp chicken stock 2 tbsp olive oil 2 tsp lemon zest 1 tsp ground cumin 1 clove garlic cayenne pepper to taste
In a large bowl, toss 4 c. arugala with the following:2 tbsp olive oil 1 tbsp lemon juice 1 tsp dijon mustard
For whatever reason, I always think of meals in terms of entertaining. To make this less messy to eat as a party app, I would pre-cut in two-bite pieces.

Sounds thrilling, right? But seriously, my sister gave me this tip and I now swear by it: As soon as you return from grocery shopping, take the extra 15 minutes to wash and slice the fruit you purchased. Sometimes, I’ll stare at a pineapple sitting on our counter for days until finally tackling. But once all the work is taken care, I promise you will munch on these goodies all week long. It’s a nice healthy tip because fruit is the perfect snack for those trips to the fridge just looking for something easy to pop and sweet, probably out of boredom (no, is that just me?) Plus in summer when so many juicy things are in season, you want to make sure you enjoy them!
