Now that the temperatures are climbing, I am looking for healthy, light meals. I wanted to come up with a healthy salad that combines some of my favorite antioxidant-rich and detoxifying leafy greens like kale, spinach and chard. I also love brussel sprouts and they are packed with all kinds of nutrients including folate, vitamin B1 and omega-3 fatty acids. I added walnuts for protein (among their many other nutritional benefits), craisins for a bit of healthy sweetness and red onions, another great detoxifier. I topped it off with reduced- fat feta cheese and a home-made lemon yogurt dressing.
1 5 oz Bag Fresh Express Kale/Chard/Spinach Mix
10-12 medium brussel sprouts, sliced thin
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/2 cup craisins
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup feta cheese
Lemon Yogurt Dressing Ingredients:
2 large dollops of plain greek dressing (I used Dannon Oikos)
1/3 cup of lemon juice or 2 fresh squeezed lemons
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon raw honey (so much healthier to use as a sweetener , than sugar)
fresh, ground black pepper to taste
Mix salad ingredients together. Wish dressing ingredients. Pour over salad and toss. Garnish with lemon slice or wedge. Enjoy!
