We were definitely treated like royalty for lunch today. When we walked into Spangler Hall we were greeted with the most beautiful salad bar we’d ever seen. Maybe the beautiful architecture could have something to do with it, but the salad bar looked amazing and we headed right toward it to make lunch. Less made an awesome salad with mixed greens, spinach, grilled chicken, cherry tomatoes, avocado, pineapple, bulgar wheat, carrots, chickpeas, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, red bell pepper, red onion, and balsamic vinegar. Now do you understand when I say, this salad bar was literally heaven on earth?!?? I (Jess) had a similar salad with a few different mix-ins. She had a base of romaine lettuce leaves with a few strawberries, artichoke hearts, grilled chicken, a bit of tuna for some added protein, mushrooms, bulgar wheat, a wild rice salad, haricot verts, cucumber, red bell pepper, broccoli and red whine vinaigrette on the side. I think we can both agree that lunch was definitely a treat! You can really see the difference between an undergrad dining hall (where we ate for dinner last night) and a graduate school dining hall. Today is the last day of camp, so we are back to making our own meals after today. I wonder what Less will have for dinner?
What are your favorite salad mix-ins?
