Get fancy with the grill. Next time you order a cheeseburger, bring your friendly GRLLMSTR a sliced up Granny Smith (a green apple, silly) and ask for a cheeseburger with cheddar. If you want a condiment on that burger, steer away from ketchup or bbq sauce. Go for DIJON mustard and/or honey. Nom nom nom.
We did faux, so now it’s time for the real deal, bitchez.
chicken (remove any piece of chicken, preferably on the bone, from anything on the buffet line and scrape off the sauce)
an apple (GREEN PLEASE)
spoonful of mayonnaise
spoonful of dijon mustard
Get your chicken from the buffet line. If they have chicken on the bone, then GREAT. Cut up your chicken into little pieces, you can even shred it with your fork, and place in a bowl. Chop up your apple and celery and toss that in along with the craisins. Mix in your mayo and mustard. Top off with a little pepper. Fuckyeahchickensalad. Put her in a sandwich if your heart so desires.
An asian twist on a college staple. This isn’t for everyone, but give it a try if you’re into exotic shit.
Asian Tuna Salad adapted from
a spoonful of mayonnaise
a spoonful of chili paste or sriracha
a spoonful of soy sauce
a spoonful of honey
a squeeze of lime (if your dining hall magically happens to have them…)
a spoonful of minced ginger (hello stir fry line)
a bowl of tuna (the plain kind, usually at the salad bar)
some grated carrots
some chopped onions
some cilantro (check out the stir fry line)
Mix the first six ingredients in a bowl for your dressing (yes you can count, yes I’m a lazy fuck). Dump everything else in there. Mix it all up realllll good. Chow down.
Note: Like any salad, you can put this between 2 slices of bread (or TOAST) and you gotchurself a great sandwich.
Chicken Salad is a great thing. Here’s a simple and healthy imitation to try out.
a cup of chickpeas
celery (chop it up)
half of an apple, chopped (GREEN PLEASE)
some sort of seeds or nuts (walnuts if available)
a spoonful of mayonnaise (optional)
Using a fork, mash the chickpeas up in a bowl. If using avocado, mash that in now. Add cranberries, chopped celery, chopped apple, and seed/nuts and stir. If using mayonnaise, stir that shit in. Thereyougo.
Note: This is good all on its own, or you can put it in a sandwich/pita with some lettuce on top.
They have Thanksgiving at the dining hall at Appel like every other week. Here’s your opportunity to make a great fucking sandwich. Why eat things separately when you can eat them in a SANDWICH.
2 slices of bread (i like multi-grain)
sliced roast turkey
Slab on some turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and top with some lettuce. Dip your sandwich in gravy if you’re into that.
This is some simple shit right here.
2-3 hard boiled eggs
a spoonful of mayonnaise
2 slices of bread
Smash up those eggs with a spoon and then stir in the mayonnaise. Pop that between 2 slice of bread.
Notes: Egg salad is pretty delicious on its own so feel free to skip out on the bread. Add chopped onions and/or tomatoes for some extra flava.
Don’t like break? What the hell is wrong with you. Well that’s okay, here’s a “sandwich” you can make sans le carbs.
a large piece of lettuce (a leaf? Is that what you call them? I really have no fucking clue. look for them at the burger/condiment station thang)
tomatoes (chop these up or slice in strips)
a slice of cheddar (cut into strips)
chicken (grab some from the buffet line and scrape off whatever sauce is on there, and slice)
chickpeas or kidney beans (or if black beans are available GET THOSE THEY ARE SO YUMMY)
onions (chop them up too)
Slice up all ingredients that need to be sliced. Place your lettuce on a plate and dump tomatoes, cheese, chicken, beans, onions and salsa all up in there. Make sure you leave enough room to “wrap” the lettuce-taco-thing up. Dip in guacamole if desired.
Note: For a BURRITO wrap, add some rice!
