Sometimes simple is simply DELICIOUS! I can’t get over how much I enjoyed this salad! Normally I’m not a cheese mixed with fruit kind of gal, I’m not sure why. The sweet fruit and the salty, creamy feta did make a great combo!
I also rarely buy salad dressing, but my attempts at recreating a sweet poppy seed dressing have all flopped. So I caved and bought this at Trader Joe’s…
It’s filled with a lot of sugar, 2 tablespoon have 10g with 90 calories, 5g of fat, and no fiber, but a little goes a long way. I stuck with 1 tablespoon for this salad and it was perfect! (note: I just heard Panera’s fat Free Poppy Seed is now available in stores but I haven’t seen it.)
- 3-4 cups of fresh romaine lettuce cleaned and torn (you could just use the bagged stuff)
- About 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- About 1/2 cup fresh strawberries cut in small chunks
- 1 oz (28g) Crumbled Feta
- 1 tbsp Sweet Poppy Dressing
Wash and prepare all your ingredients.
Allowing nibbles of course. Little guy must have eaten a pound of strawberries himself! He may not have liked the salad but he likes all the ingredients. ;)
Top the greens with the berries and cheese. Drizzle on the dressing and enjoy!
Here I am all sweaty from the gym eating my salad. Little guy’s first picture with my new camera. He’s getting good! Even though I look like crap. :)
