As the weather warms, strawberry season starts to flourish and farmer’s markets around the country begin to open, it as if our bodies know and they start firing off signals to our brains--give me freshly-picked fruits and veggies!
Our taste buds begin to change and start to crave fresher ingredients.
So here’s a refreshing, yet filling salad that is actually my husband’s creation! Enjoy!
- Organic Spring Mix
- 1 8oz. Carton of Strawberries
- 3 Mandarin Oranges
- Sliced Almonds (to taste)
- Pecans (to taste)
- Raspberry Olive Oil Vinaigrette (we use Kraft)
- Small container of Low-fat Cottage Cheese
- Feta Cheese
Slice strawberries. Peel and section mandarins. Put 2 handfuls of spring mix on each plate, leaving space for cottage cheese in the middle. Serve a helping of cottage cheese in center. Layer with rest of ingredients. Top with sliced almonds and raspberry vinaigrette.
Optional: Serve with sliced boiled egg.
NOTE: If you prefer to go VEGAN, simply leave off the cheeses and replace the protein from the boiled egg with a side of cooked quinoa.
