Sometimes I just crave a typical house salad with ranch dressing. I found this great new all-natural ranch dressing made with yogurt. It has a small fraction of the amount of fat than traditional ranch dressing and tastes even better as it is not thick and artificial. Bolthouse Farms has a whole line of these yogurt dressings found in the chilled section.
Romaine, Green Leaf, or Butter Lettuce
Diced vine-ripened or roma tomato
Diced avocado (about 1/4 an avocado)
Bolthouse Farms Ranch dressing made with yogurt
Enjoy this refreshing, basic salad without the guilt of a fatty ranch dressing!
I have always loved the creativity of photography and experimenting with viewing the world through a different “lens.” YES, I am that girl who makes everyone at the table wait to take a bite so I can take pictures of the dish.
I am taking a photography class this quarter in which we were required to purchase a DSLR camera. I have yearned for a high quality camera like this since my photography classes in high school and am so happy with my purchase.
Here are some updated photos of previous recipes along with some “Sunday Funday” food taken with my new camera:
I will do my best to take recipe pictures with my professional camera from now on. Sometimes when I’m on my way out the door I’ll have to revert to the convenient iPhone camera… Otherwise, I believe you will enjoy the new & improved pictures for Carly’s Clean Cuisine!
Dark leafy greens are the most nutritious form of veggies. This salad turns the natural bitterness of spinach into a delightful sweet &tart mixture!
2c. baby spinach or 1c. baby spinach mixed with 1c. spring mix salad
1 large green apple
1/4 c. walnuts
1/4 c. dried cranberries
2 Tbsp. Raspberry vinaigrette dressing or Panera’s poppyseed dressing (or another healthy dressing)
Look for natural or organic dressings without preservatives. Beware of dressings that say nonfat or sugar-free because these often have the most unnatural ingredients to make up for it. Just choose a vinaigrette dressing and stick with 1-2 tablespoons. Steer clear of ranch, thousand island, creamy caesar, etc.
Dice the green apple & chop the walnuts
Toss all the salad ingredients together
I’m always looking for new salad combinations to keep them interesting. This one is my go-to sweet salad combo, enjoy!
