Sweet and Crunchy Walnut Salad


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

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!


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.
