For a delicious way to get a big portion of your daily requirements of fruits, vegetables, nuts and beans out of the way in one fell swoop, try this big salad I created for lunch last week.
roasted red bell peppers, chopped
toasted walnuts, chopped
roasted garlic cloves, sliced
extra virgin olive oil
fresh ground sea salt and pepper
For this dish I used roasted bell peppers I had prepared the night before for another dish. I purchased the roasted garlic at the olive bar at Safeway.
To toast walnut halves, break them up and put them in a small skillet over medium heat. Watch them carefully because they burn easily.
Place greens on a ten inch plate and top with remaining ingredients. Salt and pepper generously. Squeeze a generous amount of lime juice over salad and top with olive oil.
You can size this dish to each individual palate. I like to use generous portions of the toppings for maximum deliciousness. Don't skimp.
Amazing flavors, nutritious and super easy!
Enjoy your weekend, Shiree'
