Shelia: Molly and I are distinctly different people. However, we do share very strong opinions on certain things. One of those things is how to make a salad in the Tully. Here are two recipes for our go-to salads in the Tully. Are we qualified to give this advice? No. Are we passionate about the fact that we are right? Yes! Enjoy!

½ cup of spinach

½ cup of arugula

10-15 cucumber slices

2 sections of avocado (depending on how it looks that day)

2 hard-boiled eggs

2 lemon sections (squeeze juice over salad)

A dash of olive oil

Salt and pepper

Optional: 1 cup of brown rice

Mix all of the actual ingredients together first, then add the lemon juice, olive oil and spices last so nothing gets soggy. This is something that I get when I am running to the Tully in between work and class, and it makes me feel great. There is just enough green food that I feel like Gwyneth Paltrow would be proud of me, while still being really filling. Best enjoyed with a Diet Coke mid-meeting, eaten probably out of a Tupperware.

Molly: I’m a Slytherin and Sheila’s a Ravenclaw, I like black nail polish and Sheila likes a soft baby pink…we’re quite different. So here’s my version of her salad, yet more to my taste buds and the soul of me that has never left Hot Topic.

1 cup of iceberg lettuce

½ cup of spinach

10 pieces of broccoli

¼ cup of red onions

1 hard boiled egg

1 cup of grilled chicken

1 tablespoon of olive oil

1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon of dried cranberries

You mix it all together in the above order and then eat it. It’s fantastic with a glass of lemon flavored water and a window seat in the Tully. You can eat your salad and feel superior to anyone who gets fries. Then if you want, you can have a cookie without any sort of guilt. You deserve that cookie friend, you deserve it.
