This is a quick, nutritious and delicious salad recipe that I copied from a local restaurant. It makes a good meal or sidedish.
Lettuce/greens of choice, torn
1-2 stalks celery, sliced
1 green onion sliced
1 apple, quartered and sliced thinly
chicken breast in thin strips (either deli or home cooked)
1-2 slices swiss cheese, in thin strips
your favorite sweetish dressing such as poppy seed, celery seed, raspberry vinaigrette (see below)
Mix the ingredients together in the proportions and amount you need. Toss with a small mount of dressing.
Quick Berry Vinaigrette
In a blender, puree 1 tbls. chopped onion, 1/4 cup vinegar, 2-3 berries of choice. 1/2 - 1 tsp. sugar or stevia. While the blender is running, drizzle in 1/2 cup oil (canola or light olive oil) until blended.
