Taste of Summer Salad
Very easy to make and also very easy to change or tweak each time you make it, I had this last night for dinner, and thought it tasted like a bit of summer in mid winter - hence the name.
What you need: 1cup of mixed baby spring greens; 1 cup of baby spinach leaves; 1/2 cup of dried blueberries, (or fresh blueberries); 1/4 cup of fried onion pieces, (available in packages near the fresh salad stuff at your grocery store); 1/4 cup slivered almonds. dressings of your choice.
What you do: In a large salad bowl toss the greens, onion, fruit and nuts. Allow each person to add dressing of their choice on their plate. (The biggest advantage to this, is that left over salad can be put into the frige to enjoy the next day).
- use any kind of fruit or berries - they can be fresh, frozen and thawed, dried, or canned - peaches, etc.
- use any kind of nuts that you like, or top with one of the salad topper mixes which are available in the grocery store.
- add or remove any kind of lettuce or greens that you want.
