This salad will taste better with a salad dressing, but I liked the idea of eating raw vegetables as broccoli, cauliflower....
It's very healthy to also eat raw vegetables.
The fruits and nuts were great addition.

********************************

The following salad is really yummy with yummy dressing.
WW members whom I gave this recipe, tell me they now make it all the time. Enjoy.
I write a lot, but it takes couple of minutes to make it. Less ingredients. Different salad.


Remember this song?
Oh, what a beautiful morning
Oh, what a beautiful day......

* This salad is so gooooooooooooood. We now eat it 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

Notes!

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
