I was browsing recipes on Pinterest, and I found this pin:

It’s just a simple veggie salad with a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper, and feta cheese.  So often, I forget how much flavor and satisfaction veggies can provide simply by themselves, without the frills and thrills of other added ingredients!  It certainly doesn’t hurt that fewer ingredients makes a recipe much easier too! 🙂

This thought of “simply veggies” inspired my lunch today.  I decided to just throw together a hodgepodge of different veggies to make a salad, and top it with a drizzle of olive oil, a splash of lemon juice, and a sprinkle of sea salt.  Oh, and I added a bit of goat cheese (I can’t help it, I’m addicted! 😉 ).  It was SO yummy!  I will list the ingredients I used, but really, you can use any veggies you want.  The bigger the variety of veggies, the bigger the variety of flavors, making for a really fun meal!

Here was what I put together:
