The Best Salad

Quick tip: Adding brown rice to your salad makes it more hearty, nutty & flavorful!

Ingredients:

IMG_5119

  • Spring mix lettuce
  • Shredded carrots
  • Sprouts or micro greens
  • Short grain brown rice (the short grain has a nuttier flavor & texture than long grain)
  • Lower sodium soy sauce
  • All natural guacamole (use less than 1/4 c. in one salad) or diced avocado
  • Feta cheese (no more that 1/8 c.)
  • Tahini dressing or a vinegar-based dressing of your choosing

Directions:

Spring Mix for the Best Salad recipe

Quick tip:  Mix together the lettuce, carrots & micro greens with the dressing first.

Then top with the brown rice with soy sauce, guacamole & feta cheese.  This way, you are not adding dressing where it’s not necessary and will ultimately use less dressing.

Enjoy your dark, leafy greens in the most delicious way!
