Hayden’s Super Salad

I’m not one of those people that looks in a practically empty fridge, sees a few random ingredients and thinks “I’ll make this amazing meal!”. No, I am the person that looks in a practically empty fridge and decides to make toast or a jaffle (no shame in eating a jaffle, everyday for every meal…I would if I could). Hayden is the opposite. He looks in the empty fridge, almost always after I’ve had 3 pieces of toast and a kilo of butter, and whips up something amazing. As much as love toast, I am seriously envious of people who have this ability. It is with Hayden’s amazing magical powers that he made this salad. It’s stupidly easy and cheap, you have no excuses to eat toast if you have at least half of these ingredients in your fridge or pantry. Make it, eat it, repeat.
