After a long game day weekend filled with drinking and the inevitable drunchies, it’s normal to want to start off your week feelin’ healthy. However, after spending your Saturday pre-gaming at the crack of dawn and cheering your little maize and blue heart out at the Big House, when Sunday night rolls around you are left with nothing in the fridge but a slice of turkey, a half-empty container of hummus and a few random vegetables on the verge of rotting… yum.

Solution: this simple tomato and Gorgonzola salad is a delicious way to throw together some of the leftover veggies sitting neglected on the shelf of your fridge without having to heat up that kinda nasty 2-month-old Lean-Cuisine you’ve been avoiding.


Servings: 1

1/2 container grape tomatoes
1/4 onion
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup Gorgonzola cheese crumbles
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
