Hearty Side Salad

Side Salad PinYou can pair a side salad with just about anything. It’s easy to make and full of nutrients. Skip the iceberg, though. It’s like green water. You’ll need the hearty leaf kinds like kale, chard, mustard greens, spinach, romaine, arugula or lettuce.

Made according to this recipe, it has only 149 calories, but 242% RDV Vitamin A, 190% Vitamin C, 11 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein. Now that’s a healthy, hearty side salad!

Get creative with your ingredients to keep it new and interesting. Try topping it with some chopped nuts, currants, cherry tomatoes, red onions, avocado, artichoke hearts, mushrooms, cucumber or your other favorite salad mixings.

This recipe uses my favorite JP’s Italian Salad Dressing. It only has 5 calories per serving and tastes delicious!
