A Salad Fit For A Man

by HEAB on July 1, 2010

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post featuring CD’s eats. For any new readers, CD = Chris, my husband.


Chris runs, but doesn’t eat like a typical high mileage runner. My boy likes his veggies, and lots of them! Here are some past posts detailing how he eats:

Unfortunately, since the HEABlet came along, stir-fries and roasted vegetables have been outlawed in our kitchen as I just can’t handle the smell. So, my sweet and understanding hubby has been eating his veggies raw and making big salads every night. Thanks CD!

Lately, this is his favorite dinner of choice…


CD’s Salad



  • 2 to 3 strips of bacon
  • Hummus
  • Beaver’s Sweet Hot Mustard
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Bell Pepper
  • Sun dried tomatoes
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Parmesan cheese


Fry the bacon and save the bacon grease. In a large pyrex or glass container (with a lid), stir together a heaping spoonful of hummus with a few squirts of mustard and about 1 TBSP bacon grease. Add a bit of water to thin to dressing consistency. Then add the lettuce, chopped veggies, crumbled bacon, and sprinkle a generous serving of Parm on top. Next, place the lid on the glass container and shake shake shake. CD said the key is putting the dressing in the bottom of the container so that the lettuce gets a nice coating. That boy…so smart. :)


Will you try CD’s salad? I did, and trust me, it is delicious!
