Red n’ Green Christmas Salad

IMG_0334

Merry Christmas!  I was tasked with bringing a salad to Christmas Dinner this year.  Seriously?  Why does the dietitian always get tasked with the salad?  But I was happy for that actually because I knew there would be some fresh veggies on the table at least 😉  In the spirit of the season I picked vegetables that were red or green!  It was crisp and delicious and complimented the other heavy meal items well!

Ingredients:

Romaine lettuce

Spinach

Broccoli florets (they can be slightly cooked for 1 minute in the microwave to take the bitter edge off if necessary)

Celery

Cucumber

Radishes

Red Pepper

Directions:

1. Wash and chop vegetables.

2. Artfully display your vegetables in a nice serving bowl.

3. Convince your family members to eat salad at Christmas dinner….or at least along with the leftovers the following day.
