A Summer Salad

Recipe name: Green and Red Salad
Source: no idea
Servings: 4-6
Cookbook date: June 4
Date prepared: June 1

Mixed greens or spinach
2 green onions, chopped
1 medium red apple, diced
1 cup fresh raspberries or strawberries
raspberry vinaigrette dressing

In a bowl, toss salad greens, onions, and fruit. Drizzle with dressing, toss and serve immediately.

This was a great choice for us as we faced our first dinner at home after eating out and at the tables of others for a full week. It was super simple and required no cooking, just some chopping. Also, this was a feel good dish. I was eating vegetables and fruits, and for a brief moment I convinced myself that this is how I always eat. The only downside is that this can be sort of tough to fill up on, but if you add some pine nuts and some goat cheese, and maybe some raisins it would be more filling. Otherwise, I would recommend this as a starter or side dish.
