Spring lunch


Life has been so busy lately that I've been living off things in my freezer and the veggies in my fridge, somehow creatively thrown together.  This is a nice one -- arugula, fennel, cabbage with grilled asparagus and grilled Trader Joe's meatless meatballs.

Salad:
1 fennel bulb, halved
1/4 head of a small head of cabbage
handful arugula salad
salt, pepper,
Galeo's dressing (Miso Ginger)
green asparagus
4 meatless meatballs (Trader Joe's or others).

I sliced the fennel and cabbage thinly into a plastic bowl using a mandoline, added the salt and pepper, and mixed it well. In a serving bowl, I mixed the arugula salad and about 1/4th of the fennel/cabbage salad, and added the dressing. Heated the broiler, and grilled the asparagus and meatballs for about 10-12 mins. It helps to brush the asparagus with some olive oil and add some salt. With the broiling, the meatballs get a nice crunchy crust. Serve asparagus and meatballs with the salad.
