I am often asked how I create my salads. I can honestly say that I take the fresh produce that I have in my fridge and on my counter, mix them together and create healthy and DELICIOUS salads. They are wonderful. Every one of them. I always add fresh herbs, extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper for a dressing that enhances the rich flavors of the fresh ingredients.
This is a refreshing and light salad that can be enjoyed as a main dish or as a side salad.
- Romain, spinach or spring mix
- fresh ripe tomato slices
- a half of a ripe avocado, cubed
- a tablespoon of crumbled feta, optional
- a handful of fresh basil leaves, chopped thinly
- salt and pepper to taste
- a drizzle of olive oil
Layer it together in a shallow bowl or on a plate and you have a wonderful healthy meal! Pair it with a nice piece of crusty bread or a bowl of warm, comforting soup and enjoy!
