Light Summer Eating
Written by Ginger Martin on June 20, 2014
If you’re like me, the hot weather really curbs my appetite. I just don’t feel like eating as much in the summer. And when I do eat, it’s usually just small, light meals. That’s why the Copps/Pick N Save websites are so helpful. They give me dozens of recipe ideas that are on the light side and perfect for summer meals. I love fruit in my vegetable salads and this is a nice treat from the normal “fruit” on salad recipes. It’s fabulous. Hope you’ll give it a try too!
1 whole head of romaine lettuce, washed, dried, chopped
1 whole head red leaf lettuce, washed and chopped
1 whole Belgian endive, washed and chopped
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup fresh raspberries
2 cups sliced apples
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 pinch salt
1 pinch black pepper
¼ chopped walnuts
Wash and dry greens. Tear or chop greens into bite sized pieces.
Whisk lemon juice and mustard together in a salad bowl. Add olive oil and whisk with mustard and lemon juice to combine.
Toss sliced apples, tomatoes, raspberries and walnuts with the greens.
Drizzle with dressing and add salt and pepper to taste
