Berries and Green Salad

Berries and Green Salad

My sister-in-law made this salad for dinner during our visit to North Carolina. I watched her make it and it is very simple to put together. It contains two of my favorite foods berries and greens(the romaine lettuce and baby spinach). The dressing is low in calories and fat. Ideal for those of us who watch their fat intake. Walnuts added to this recipe give it a good crunch. This recipe is very nutritious as well as delicious. It contains vitamins, phytochemicals, and omega 3 fatty acids. Enjoy!

1 cup of torn romaine

1 cup fresh baby spinach

1 cup of sliced fresh strawberries

1/2 cup thinly sliced celery

1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

1/2 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

2 green onions, chopped

1/4 cup raspberry vinaigrette

1 cup fresh raspberries.

Directions

Place the first 7 ingredients in a large bowl. To serve drizzle vinaigrette and toss to combine. Top with raspberries

Serves 4
