Simply Salad With Sesame-Lime Vinaigrette


It's been a pretty lazy weekend so far and not much cooking going on at the moment. The ephemeral pleasures of that transient cold front are mere memories now. Ah, but it was nice while it lasted. With temperatures back in the mid to upper 80s, my food choices have been a bit lighter for the past few days. This evening's dinner was no exception.

Tomatoes & Cucumber
I have quite a few veggies I need to use up pretty quickly and since I wasn't in the mood to cook, I opted for the fastest meal I could think of. Nothing fancy, complicated or time consuming. Simply salad. Mixed greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, albacore tuna and my multi-purpose Sesame-Lime Vinaigrette (I use this stuff on many things, including as a dipping sauce for my pan-fried Chinese dumplings). Not much else to say about this one; the photos pretty much speak for themselves.
