When Hunger Strikes

It is 1.32 a.m. 
I am hungry, and my stomach is growling. 
I have no drinkable water.

I try not to eat after 7 p.m. 
Even if I wanted to cook, the stove is out of order. 
And so is the kettle.

Just eat - or else risk a sleepless night. 
Make a salad out of random stuff in the fridge. 
No need to drink after eating the salad - it is moist enough.

The Desperado Salad

You will need: 
2 tomatoes
1 cucumber
1/2 green bell pepper
4 crab sticks
A sizeable amount of light mayonnaise
1 tbsp white balsamic vinegar
Some oregano, marjoram, garlic granules, black pepper, and dried basil leaves
Salt and sugar to taste

Easy. Wash all veggies. Dice. Put in bowl. Do the same with the crab sticks. Put in vinegar. Pour the mayonnaise until it coats everything nicely. Add zest with spices and salt and sugar. Enjoy.

Preparation time:
Depends on how fast you dice them raw ingredients. I took about 5 minutes to get it all done.
