Salad, Just Salad

Submitted by: GBNEWBY

Introduction

This is a placeholder to get nutrition information from a typical all-veggie mixed salad (dressing is omitted) This is a placeholder to get nutrition information from a typical all-veggie mixed salad (dressing is omitted)

Ingredients

    Salad greens (spinach, red cabbage, leaf or romaine lettuce)
    8-10 mushrooms
    1 generous handful snap peas
    1 or 2 medium carrots
    1 pepper

Directions

Look, it's salad. Wash everything thoroughly in warm water, pat dry. Use your hands to tear lettuce (not a knife). Slice mushrooms, peppers coarsely. Use snap peas whole, or cut in half if desired. Slice or grate carrots.

A salad secret: don't overload on "just" greens. Look for about 1/3 to 1/2 of the volume of the salad to be non-leaf veggies.

Do variations. You know how. I made this recipe because I was tired of putting in every ingredient separately for my salad food entry.

Sprinkle some spices: oregano, basil, chili powder, or your favorite.

Balsamic vinegar adds practically no calories, as a dressing. Or, apply whatever you prefer.
