So this is not exactly a traditional recipe. But I just love this simple salad & have been eating it so much lately that I thought I'd share. And to be honest, the biggest reason for eating it so much lately is, well, laziness. I just have not felt like cooking this past week or so. The youngest is done with preschool and already bored. The constant rain has not helped. Time to sew has not been easy to find...I guess even cooking is getting the short straw to make time for me...me me me. Yup - that whole 2 hours spread through out the day of just me...ahhh, kids - gotta love 'em.
Anyway - the salad:
- Lettuce - anything but Iceburg
- Dried cranberries (or apples - green/Granny Smith)
- Crumbled blue cheese
- Walnuts - no sugary or salty crud added
- Dressing - just a teeny bit - I found a great Blue Cheese by Walden Farms...calorie free, sugar free, carb free, gluten free, cholesterol free & no preservatives - and yes, it actually tastes great!
...note: I have used a mild vinagrette sometimes too.
