Salad Fun

After yesterday’s post on greens I thought it would be fun to post a salad recipes. This can, of course, be altered to fit whatever you have on hand. I like to make enough so that it is a full meal by itself. You can adjust it so that it is a side salad or simply have leftovers for another salad later. If you plan to save some for later, then it is better not to put dressing on the whole thing. I also recommend adding any grains and fish only to what you plan to eat right away. It will keep better this way.

Fresh Spring Salad

Spring Salad

Spring Salad


  • Spring Lettuce – can be a mixture of types or one type
  • 1 carrot, cut into slices
  • 5 – 6 snap peas, cut into quarters
  • Some chives, cut into pieces
  • 1 – 2 Tbsp. of Sauerkraut
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced
  • 2 calendula flowers, petals only
  • Cooked grains, i.e. rice or quinoa (optional)
  • 2 oz. of fish, tuna or salmon, crumbled over the salad (optional)
  • A large dollop of hummus on top
  • Dressing*


  1. Place lettuce in a large bowl
  2. Add all other toppings
  3. Pour on dressing
  4. Enjoy!

* I enjoy a simple dressing made up of olive oil, lemon juice and seasonings (i.e. salt, pepper, plus whatever you like), but you can use whatever you like. Sometimes I mix mine with the hummus before adding it all to the salad.
