Layered Spinach Salad
Heart Smart Healthy Exchanges p.85
Popeye isn't the only person to cheer the health benefits of that dark-green and oh-so-nutritious veggie, spinach, but he's probably the best-known! This is a great way to serve spinach to anyone who isn't sure he likes it..and I'll just bet you'll win him over.
4 cups fresh, torn spinach leaves, stems removed and discarded
1 1/4 cups sliced unpeeled cucumbers
1/2 cup sliced radishes
1/4 cup sliced green onion
2 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
1/2 cup Kraft Fat-Free Ranch Dressing
1/4 cup Kraft fat-free mayonnaise
Evenly layer spinach, cucumbers, radishes, onion, and eggs in an 8-by-8-inch dish. In a small bowl, combine Ranch dressing and mayonnaise. Spread dressing mixture over top. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours. Toss gently just before serving.
