My Everyday Salad Is Healthy and Delicious

We all have our favorite salads, right? My Everyday Salad is the salad I eat most days, especially during the summer months. For me, salads are definitely a warm-weather meal. 

Today I’m sharing my favorite lunch. It’s quick and easy. It’s filling and it’s portable. I’m trying to see how many sentences I can start with the word it’s.  And it’s healthy. It’s my super-lunch and I eat it several times a week.

My Everyday Salad

Let’s get real. I eat this salad just about every day in the spring and summer. I never, ever tire of the crunchiness, the sweetness, the tartness, the goodness. Yum! It’s my everyday salad and it’s almost embarrassingly easy – almost!

Yield: 1 Serving
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

This is my go-to salad during the spring and summer. I love the crunch of the pecans and apples.

Ingredients

  • 2-3 cups organic spring mix (baby greens & radicchio)
  • 1 red delicious apple, cored and chopped
  • 1/4 cup toasted pecans
  • 2 Tablespoons Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame Lite Anything Dressing
  • 1 Tablespoon cranberries (optional, if I have them on hand)

Instructions

  1. Place the spring mix baby greens in a bowl or plate. Top with apples, pecans and cranberries. Drizzle the dressing over the top.

Mix Things Up With My Everyday Salad

Sometimes, just to mix things up, I use a Bosc pear instead of an apple and walnuts or almonds instead of the Voodoo Pecans. The dressing is always the same. I heart this salad.  And my heart hearts me!  🙂

This salad can also be stuffed into a pita for a portable lunch.
