Wayside Inn Salad

Ham, cheese and eggs. Personally, I think life is too short to eat apple peels. Your results may vary. If you feel an irresistible urge to make the salad look red, beets.

Someone will inevitably say, at this point, “but the peel is full of antioxidants!” Well, the peel is indigestible. It doesn’t matter that it’s full of antioxidants if you can’t digest them anyway. It’s like eating a metal box of vitamins because it’s full of vitamins. Except the metal box has a more appetizing texture.
