TIP OF THE DAY: Reinvented Veggies

Instead of reheating leftover vegetables and serving them as “leftovers,” reinvent them as a cold salad.

No matter what the vegetable, you can toss it with a little olive oil and some vinegar or a squeeze of lemon or lime juice. If you can combine more than one vegetable, so much the better. Variety is the spice of life!

Speaking of spice, add any fresh herbs you may have at hand, or peruse the spice cabinet for red pepper flakes, sesame seeds and other favorites.

Add a bit of chopped green onion or whatever else is in the fridge. If you there’s an apple or orange, chop it and add it, or garnish with nuts, raisins or other dried fruits.

Got cheese? Sprinkle some on.

No one will think they’re getting “leftovers.”
