Ingredients

    26 g Spinach, fresh raw, rinse & pat dry
    56 g Romaine Lettuce, fresh raw, torn into bite-size pcs
    62 g Tomatoes, fresh raw, chopped
    48 g Broccoli, fresh raw, chopped
    40 g Mushrooms, fresh raw, sliced or chopped
    32 g Carrots, fresh raw, chopped
    32 g Celery, fresh raw, chopped
    16 g Onion, fresh raw, diced
    16 g Red Bell Pepper, fresh raw, chopped
    16 g Green Bell Pepper, fresh raw, chopped
    72 g Fresh Strawberries, hulled, fresh raw, sliced
    50 g Mandarine Orange slices, canned, (9 slices)
    30 g Pecan Halves, lightly toasted

Directions

In a non-stick skillet, toast pecans on med-high heat, stir occasionally to toast both sides. (I toast a pan-full to have toasted pecans for snacking & other salads.) Once toasted, pour pecans from pan onto waxed paper on counter, spread them out to cool evenly.

Rinse Spinach and Romaine Lettuce then spin dry (or pat dry in-between a clean towel or paper towels.)

Place your salad bowl on a digital food scale.

Weigh each salad ingredient, pressing the "0" button in-between ingredients.

Pour 30g salad dressing* over salad and toss for approx. a minute to coat every ingredient well.

After I coat all the veggie ingredients, I add 3-4 ounces of grilled chicken or salmon to make this a complete, satisfying meal.

*The salad dressing I prefer with this salad is a Fat Free Honey Mustard from Maple Grove Farms of Vermont (found at Krogers Grocery) = 40 calories for 30 g / 2 tbls.

**NOTE: This recipe does not include Salad Dressing calories -- you need to add your salad dressing calories.
