Rice Noodle Salad with Grapefruit

I pretty much never go to the library while school’s in session. During the average week, I’d rather use my spare time for cooking, running, and hanging with Ellie. BUT there was no work and endless free time last week, so I walked down to the library with her to peruse the cookbook section.

Why I don’t have How to Cook Everything Vegetarian in my collection is beyond me. I’ve made every dinner this week from this cookbook and they’ve all been awesome.

Biryani and Urad Dal with Poppy Seeds last night. So good.

Last night also happened to be one of those nights where beer was necessary. Not sure why we had it in wine glasses, but it was much appreciated.

And now it’s pizza Friday, and I’m making Spinoccoli Pizza. Happy weekend to us all!

I made a double batch of this salad on Sunday night and we had plenty for lunches for days. Unless you’re feeding an army or you want a ton of leftovers, a single recipe is definitely sufficient. I added some pan-fried tofu to up the protein and make it more of a main dish. I can see the end of grapefruit season coming and it’s tragic, but for now, I’m eating them with reckless abandon, and they’re perfect in this salad!

    I love “How to Cook Everything Vegetarian.” Its logic really appeals to me. “now that you know how to do this, here are 14 different variations” This salad looks delicious. I’ve been having to go to the farmers’ market to even figure out what’s in season these days. Is it possible it’s already asparagus time?! the market tells me so. That said, I’ve been craving a grapefruit and avocado salad that I think simply has to happen this week πŸ™‚

    I never would have thought to put grapefruit with noodles!

    We’ve entered the terrible 2s over here – beer is neccessary every day, haha. But in all seriousness, this salad sounds delicious. I can’t believe it got up to 78 today. This would have been perfect for dinner had I seen it sooner! Hope you guys are doing well.
