I’m a salad fanatic! Give me a bowl full of mixed green salad and my creative juices start to flow.
You can put pretty much ANYTHING on it. I love to put garbanzo beans, well, pretty much any bean really. Onion, artichoke, celery, tomato, radish, nuts…..the list could go on forever, so I’m sure you get my drift!
Here’s the thing about salad though. It’s not as much the ingredients in your bowl as it is the dressing you put on top that determines how healthy it is.
That’s why a long time ago, I started making my own dressings. Whether your tastes go to Creamy Cucumber Ranch, yummy Thousand Island (which is my all-time fave), or a simple Balsamic Vinaigrette, I highly recommend that you begin making your own dressing. Plus, they just plain ole taste better too!
I just had this salad for my lunch and I can tell you, I’m very satisfied without feeling weighted down, and I know I’ll have all the energy I’ll need to get me through to dinner.
Speaking of dinner, I’ve created another super yummy recipe that I’m going to have Richie throw on the grill, so stay tuned!
This recipe is the day two (2) dinner salad recipe of my 7-Day Meal Plan program. I created the program because after researching the meal plan program provided by a recognized authority on diabetes, I was appalled at the ingredients and nutrition values.
