So i apologize to my readers i am MAJORLY on a salad kick, i believe its mostly because a year ago i was told i had to limit/regulate my Vitamin K intake and i was terrified of salads, asparagus, broccoli and those sorts of things mostly green stuff. But now i am more of in a whatever mode and i feel healthier when i eat those sort of things, so i am. This salad no lie is the most delicious salad i have ever eaten in my life, it is sweet, salty, savory, nutty, and awesome:) As you may know i live in Lower east Michigan, and there is a foot of snow on the ground and more keeps falling, and rather then soup i turn to salad.
Strawberry, Kalamata & more!
*note i did not measure i just tossed on the amounts, i have a small-medium sized hand so maybe 1/2 a cup for handfuls.
1 plate full of lettuce(per person or use a bowl for a big group and triple the amounts)- for my lettuce i used a trio i can’t remember the type but dole sells it in a box.
1 handful of dried cranberries
1 handful of pine nuts
4-6 pitted kalamata olives
2-5 pitted cherries ( i used bing)
2-3 sliced strawberries
1 pinch of sprouts
2-4 grape tomatoes
1-2 tbsp of strawberry balsamic dressing, or regular balsamic. (i included a photo of my favorite dressing.)
*note- the dressing has very little calories, no fat, low sodium, low carbs, it is amazing and the best balsamic dressing i have EVER had.
On another note, i went and saw ‘bride wars’ with Kate Hudson & Anne Hathaway, it was surprisingly good, not great mind you, but good quirky & funny. The wierd thing was the theater was full of chicks(no surprise), but behind me was a group of 5 guys just hanging out and they were not making fun of the movie, they seemed to be enjoying it. 😀 It was fun though and i recommend seeing it if you can.
That’s all hopefully next post won’t be a salad 😀
