Like I’ve mentioned before in my salad on the go post, my HH(Healthy Husband) and I eat a salad a day. This means that I have to get creative. I have tried a TON of combinations and somehow they never go wrong! I usually have one bean of some sort, a nut or seed (sometimes both), a fruit and sometimes extra veggies on top. I’ve also experimented with dressings and haven’t had a bad combo yet. *knock on wood!*
We made this salad and topped it with a poppy seed dressing that I bought from the store. You could also top it with an Italian dressing, a vinaigrette..etc.
- romaine lettuce
- slivered almonds
- black beans
- diced apples
- your choice of dressing
- Chop your lettuce and load it into your bowl. Pile all the toppings up on top of your lettuce and drizzle your dressing.
- Hint for the dressing: try to only put a little bit on, you can always add more if you need more, but you can’t take away dressing that’s already been added!
I also want to include the version of our dinner that I made for my 1 1/2 year old daughter.
My daughter’s version of our dinner:
Directions: I washed the lettuce a couple extra times then chopped the lettuce, beans, apples and almonds to fine pieces. I then added the corn, dressing and also a little flaxmeal for good measure. She loved this one!
