I know it is that time of year to break out the sugar and the cookie cutters… However, the holiday season can be an opportunity for good nutrition (with a few sugary indulgences). In fact, I would like to introduce my current favorite “Christmas Salad,” which is guaranteed to bring you some tastes of the season, without all those extra calories. Here’s the easy recipe:
-Baby Spinach/Cabbage/Kale Salad Mix-whatever greens you prefer.
-Crumbled Feta Cheese
-Any kind of vinaigrette (I am currently using Panera’s brand of Fuji Apple Vinaigrette Dressing)
Instead of giving you specific measurements, I just throw all of these ingredients together and dive in! If you, like me, don’t like a lot of dressing, just pour a little into a bowl as a dip for your salad.
That’s it! This is a very simple and healthy way to get into the spirit, without guilt!
I wish you and yours a delightful holiday season.
