Salads are my lifeline for feeling and eating healthy.  But it has to be salads that has a lot to it so I’m not left reaching for something else to eat later.  Because salads are such a big deal at our house, I am constantly coming up with new ideas for our salad rotations.  This is a current favorite and it serves 2-3 adults or 2 adults 2 kids.  This would be an excellent vegan choice if you omit the meat and cheese. 

 

Dressing

1 TBS mustard
1 TBS  honey
1 TSP red wine vinaigrette
1 TSP balsamic vin aigrette
Juice of 1  lime
Rind grated from lime ( should amount to a few pinches)
1 garlic clove smashed
1/3 cup olive oil
S&P to taste

DIRECTIONS FOR DRESSING
Mash garlic with a fork. I like to add a pinch of salt over the garlic before i mash it because it helps it become a paste. Whisk all ingredients together and chill until you are ready to dress. You could probably keep this up to 5 days in the fridge.

Salad ingredients   

1 pack of mixed greens  
16 ounces cooked ribeye, filet or any steak (you can get from deli or make yourself) 
1 whole wheat pita  
1 TSP-TBS olive oil  
1 cucumber shaved in ribbons
1 avocado sliced
10 cherry tomatoes halved 
1/8 red onion slivered  
1/2 pack of feta cheese (optional but delicious)

SALAD DIRECTIONS
Slice and prep all items above according to directions. In a large bowl add the mixed greens and toss in 3/4 of the dressing. In a nonstick pan, heat olive oil on medium high heat, add the wholewheat flatbread and cook on each side for about 2 min or until golden brown. Remove from heat and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Cut in half and then strips. For this salad I like to arrange on a platter because I think it looks pretty that way.  Add your greens to a platter and then add the steak in a wavy line. Next tuck in all the other ingredients listed. Drizzle the remainder of the dressing on top, Serve and Enjoy.

You could toss it all together in a bowl too if that’s what you prefer, I would just dice the meat instead of slice because it will be easier to eat that way.
