Remember this song? Oh, what a beautiful morning Oh, what a beautiful day......
* This salad is so gooooooooooooood. We now eat it almost every day in addition to another salad (with more vegetables) * So easy to make. * Prepared in minutes * Great for company and of course for you, every day * Serve in a clear nice bowl to show the beautiful colors
It is from cooking light book called:"The best of Cooking Lighr everyday favorites" Over 500 of their all-time greatest recipes 2007, Oxmoor house publishing
1. I'm using Earthbound farm organic half and half: Half spring mix and half baby spinach. It comes in a big plastic container - 1 lb. weight. 2. I do use the walnut oil because the flavor is better. If you change it to olive oil, you'll get milder results. 3. According to Cooking Light nutrition information, each serving is 2 PointsPlus. But because the apple (or pear) are 0 points, I think this salad is only 1 PointPlus per serving 4. I substitute sometimes a pear for the apple. Great taste! 5. I use any sweet apple I like 6. Make your salad your main meal by adding protein to your likening and a stachy vegetable
6 cups gourmet salad greens (please read note # 1) 1 cup (2") julienne-cut Braeburn apple. I diced it. (Please read note # 5) 2 tablespoons cider vinegar ( I use apple cider vinegar) 2 tablespoons maple syrup ( the pure one! no imitations) 2 teaspoons whole-grain Dijon mustard (I didn't use whole grain one. Have to look for it) 1 1/2 teaspoons walnut oil ( I do not sunstitute with olive oil) 1/8 teaspoon salt ( I omit the salt) 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1. Combine salad greens and applein a large bowl (a beautiful bowl will make the salad tastes better....smile) 2. Combine vinegar and next 5 ingredients, stirring with a whisk. Drizzle over salad; toss gently to coat.

Here is the 2nd salad I eat almost every day I chopp everything in a manual chopper
Tomatoes Cucumbers Purple onion Purpl cabage Red pepper Yellow pepper Green pepper Olives (it is very inexpensive to buy olives in a mediterranian store, especially if you buy them with the pit, and take the pits out at home. $2.99 per pound, compare to $8.99 per pound. I like black olives) Feta cheese Lemon juice Olive oil
Mix all and enjoy.
