It’s not a regular occurrence but when I’m whipping something up for just myself, I tend to not make something fancy. Meaning, I won’t make something that would take me longer than 20 minutes in the kitchen.
These are the recipes that typically don’t make their way to the blog because I wind up throwing a bunch of things together into a bowl and eating it. I never think to photograph these concoctions.
Well, that is until now.
While staying with my sister Amanda in Missoula, Montana we were working on a project together and I got hungry. So I ran to the kitchen to whip up something quick for myself.
I came back to the table and she asked me why I wasn’t taking a picture of my meal for the blog. And I told her honestly, “this is just a quick thing I threw together, nothing special”. And her response was, “that’s the kind of meal people want to know about! And I want to know what you put in there.” :)
So thanks to Amanda, who gave me the motivation to pull out the camera and give this quick little dish a photoshoot, now you have an example of a quick little dish that’s packed with good fat and protein!
I was actually pretty excited once I had taken the photos because I eat sardines pretty regularly. Usually I’ll just eat them straight out of the can but about half the time I just open the can and mix them straight into a salad. Or sometimes I’ll prepare a salad and just lay them on top like a garnish before serving.
The reason I was so excited though is because I have actually yet to talk about how I use sardines or share a recipe like this for using them in a meal on the blog. Well now I can’t say that anymore! ;)
I don't normally shop at #Costco but I had the chance to go recently with my sister and spotted sardines which got me all sorts of excited. NEVER AGAIN will I buy @seasonbrandofficial sardines! I'm sorry I strayed from @wildplanetfoods. This is the third can in the package I haven't been able to get into without slamming something like the back end of my knife into because the tab broke off leaving me stranded. The kitty just got a special treat when I splashed sardine oil all over the place with this one. #sardines #letmein #paleo #lunch #fail #paleoporn #missoula #montana
Ways To Serve This Dish
This salad could be considered an entire meal since it’s pretty filling with the hard boiled eggs and the sardines. Alternatively, if you’re in the mood to share, it would also make a great snack.
You could even call it an appetizer and serve it along with some Jilz Crackerz!
About The Name
I wanted to give a little hat tip to our friends Derek & Jami, owners of mmm…Coffee: A Paleo Bistro out in Denver. They serve a dish on their menu called Sardines on Greens, which is a little different from this but when I was trying to come up with a fun name for this romaine salad, they were the first ones I thought of. If you’re ever out in Denver, be sure to stop by their 100% paleo restaurant.
