Stan and I are trying to eat healthier with lean protein and fresh fruit and veggies. We love salmon and I enjoy trying different marinades. This Maple Glazed Salmon has a wonderful flavor without being too sweet. It’s easy to make with ingredients found in your pantry and fridge.

Yummy Salad

yummysalad2

A few weeks ago, while in MS visiting family, Stan’s sister, Debbie, made a wonderful salad. I promptly got out my trusty iPhone and made a list of the ingredients. She didn’t have a name for the salad but since it tastes so yummy, I named it appropriately Yummy Salad. I have made it several times and each time it is praised by all who eat it. It has so many wonderful flavors that meld beautifully. Now, on to the recipe so that you may enjoy your own Yummy Salad! One thing to keep in mind, add as little or as much for each ingredient. Deb’s directions were to add a handful of this and a handful of that. I measured my handful and came up with 1/3 cup. It worked for us. 🙂

Yummy Salad

Ingredients:

1 bag of Romaine salad mix or Spinach
(I have used both. Romaine was the original recipe but we actually like Spinach best)
1/3 cup of each of the following ingredients:
dried cranberries
cashews
walnuts or pecans
slivered almonds
pine nuts
1 tart apple, cubed in to small pieces
1 can of pears, in own juice, or 1 large pear, cut in to small pieces
Fresh grated parmesan cheese, to taste
Creamy poppy seed dressing, to taste

Directions:

After cutting fruit, add all ingredients in a large bowl and toss gently with the dressing.

I have served this salad with fish and chicken. It takes just minutes to prepare this yummilicious (not sure that’s a word but I like it) salad.

Enjoy!
