Masterpiece Salad


Often, our salad IS our meal, with some fruit on the side. We tend to make a large salad, with lots of different ingredients. I have listed what we use on our salad here and you can pick and choose what most appeals to you. These can turn your salad into a masterpiece by the time you’re done. A side benefit is that you can eat as much as you want, and as long as you don’t load it down with a fatty dressing, you’ll probably lose weight (if you need to). Regardless, you’re sure to feel the health benefits of eating live foods rather than processed, lifeless ones.

Ingredients
 

  •  Leafy green or red lettuce or spinach (choose from Bibb, Romaine, Leaf, Butterhead, or a host of others. Try them all until you find your favorite).
  • Red, yellow, orange, or green pepper
  • Cucumbers (try Seedless or Kirby)
  • Cold or hot steamed broccoli or cauliflower
  • Steamed  asparagus
  • Snowpeas or Sugar snap peas
  • Shredded carrots 
  • Mushrooms
  • Grilled eggplant
  • Water chestnuts
  • Cooked beets
  • Spanish, red or sweet onions or scallions
  • Raisins
  • Beans (Garbanzos, pinto, red, kidney, navy)
  • Green peas
  • Fresh pear, mango, pineapple, raspberries
  • Chopped walnuts, pecans, sunflower or pumpkin seeds or any other nut or seed
  • Ground flax seed
Enough choices yet? Too many??? The beauty of this combination is that you could have a salad every day for a month and never create the same salad twice. Some of these ingredients may seem strange or foreign to use as a topping for a salad. Experiment. Try different combinations until you find the one that pleases you the most.

Preparation

Start with a base of lettuce or spinach, then add as few or as many ingredients as you like to make your perfect salad.
