Salad biryani

My lunch started off with this:

I usually don't buy more than one head of lettuce at a time but the label of 'Petite Heirloom' caught my interest.

And I was pleasantly surprised by these adorable little leafy guys.

And the good news is that one of these heads is just the right amount for a salad for one.

While I washed the lettuce, I warmed some leftover biryani in the microwave.

My friend gave me a taste of this when I was hanging out at her place the other day and I LOVED it. It has an amazing mix of textures and flavors and it is practically addictive.

I tossed the lettuce with a simple dressing of olive oil and balsamic vinegar and spooned the biryani over top along with some slices of avocado.

And I did toss in some of the tomatoes left over from the breakfast bruschettas.

It has been quite a day so far. They fixed my bathroom fan which was screeching and sounded like someone having their fingernails peeled off one by one. Yeah, it was disturbing. Even the plumber that was working in there yesterday was unnerved by the sound.

They also came in and checked out my blinds and replaced one side - Woot new blinds!!

So although the construction mayhem has not been fun at least I got some things fixed :-)

There is a possibility that I may be going out tonight to the restaurant that makes that wonderful biryani - *fingers crossed*.


  1. The salad looks so good! I'm gonna keep my eyes peeled for that lettuce :)

  2. Yummm! that looks delicious!! Avocado and warm rice are perfect pairings on top of crisp lettuce!

  3. This sounds like my kind of salad! I love rice in salads...why hadn't I thought of biryani before? I'm sure it's delicious with those avocadoes!
