Fresh Greens Salad

Here is a refreshing fresh green salad from my friend Pavani. It’s so easy and tasty that I have been taking it to lunch at work as well quite often.

Ingredients:
Mixed greens
Sliced red onion
Sliced assorted bell peppers (red, orange, yellow and green)
Sliced red radish
Sliced or whole grape tomatoes
some walnuts and dried cranberries
feta cheese (grated).

Dressing:
Equal parts of olive oil, grey poupon mustard, and balsamic vinegar emulsified

Arrange the greens in a bed on a plate, decorate with the sliced onions, bell peppers, radish, and tomatoes.  Sprinkle the nuts, dried fruit and feta cheese. Drizzle the dressing and enjoy with a glass of wine!

Be creative… maybe add some fresh sliced cucumber 🙂
