Salad and burgers

Two parts on this one, either of which can be done independently to great effect.  I was working with goods on hand in both cases.


Combine a green of your choice (I used spinach; again, on hand, but a bitter would have been better) with thinly sliced bell pepper, some nicely chopped carrots, and half a ruby red grapefruit.  A few pecans wouldn't hurt things; chop finely.



  • Turmeric
  • Coriander
  • Oregano (I happened to have fresh on hand)
  • Powdered garlic
  • Powdered ginger
  • Olive oil
  • Red wine vinegar (go light; grapefruit is plenty acidic)
  • Juice from the rest of the grapefruit
Proportions are to taste.  The only constant here is the grapefruit juice.


Combine 70/30 ground beef, soy sauce, dry parsley, and powdered garlic.  Cook to taste.

Serve on butter buns or kaiser rolls or bagels or whatever else you might have around.

Combine dressing and salad.  Serve, possibly but not necessarily, chilled.
