Challenge Yourself: Make a Healthy, Hearty Salad

Panzanella

Every day, Peggy has been concocting new recipes from her fruits and veggies. In her most recent post, she mentioned a delicious salad she threw together: lettuce, pomegranates, feta cheese, baby cucumber and black cherry tomatoes with a raspberry vinaigrette dressing.

You, too, can make healthy, hearty salads in minutes. Start with a bed of greens, then add lots of fruits and veggies. Top with a lean protein (like chicken, tune or egg whites). Then add a small amount of light dressing, or just a little oil and vinegar.
