Sweet and Crunchy Walnut Salad

Ingredients:

Amount of greens, cheese and dressing used depends upon your serving size

  • romaine lettuce or baby spinach (chopped) – you may want to start with 3 cups
  • crumbled feta (or cheese of choice)
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup golden raisins or red grapes
  • ¾ cup frozen peas (thawed)
  • ¾ cup walnuts
  • 1-2 Tablespoons cup honey
  • drizzle of water
  • ¼ extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt to taste
Instructions:

Add olive oil to a saucepan over medium heat, add onions and sauté for a few minutes, until onions wilt.

Combine greens, raisins, peas, walnuts and feta in a mixing bowl.

Add sauted onions to greens and mix gently so olive oil from onions coats the salad.

Make your dressing by whisking water, honey and a dash of sea salt.

Combine all ingredients and drizzle as much dressing as you like!

Tips:

When preparing salads as your main meal, consider adding in unsaturated fats (nuts, seeds, olive oil, avocado) as well as protein (cheese, beans, legumes, peanuts) to provide a wholesome and satisfying meal.
