Mix & Match Salads

Mix & Match Salads are whole meals in a salad bowl. Start with any lettuce or salad greens you like, and add ANY other ingredients from the Food Lists from The Good Food Book: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans and more. Try to get several different bright colors in the bowl, such as something red, orange or yellow. Here's just one example:

2 Romaine lettuce hearts, sliced crosswise into 1/2" strips
1 10-ounce box small cherry tomatoes
1 6-ounce jar marinated artichoke hearts
1 ripe avocado, cut in bite-size chunks
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 3-ounce can red salmon, drained and broken into chunks
1/4 cup shredded Romano or Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon Italian spice blend, or any other seasoning of your choice, to taste
2 tablespoons rice vinegar or light wine vinegar, to taste

Toss all ingredients together in a salad bowl and serve.

2-3 servings

That's just one of endless possible combinations. Start with 3-4 cups of salad greens per person. Then add whatever amount you wish of any of the foods from the Food Lists from The Good Food Book: Vegetables, Fruits, Whole Grains, Beans, Vegetarian products, Spices & Seasonings and so forth.

Use your Mix & Match Salads twice a day on the SHOW ME! Diet, or any time you want an easy, healthful meal. For more information, read The Healthy Heart Miracle
