Super Salad

Family Circle Office Favorite: Super Salad

To make up for all the recipe tastings, our food department eats a salad for lunch nearly every day. We try to incorporate the most nutrient-dense ingredients possible -- that's how we came up with this winning combination.
-- Regina Ragone, Food Director, and Julie Miltenberger, Executive Food Editor

Directions

  • In a large bowl, toss 1 bunch watercress (tough stems discarded), 1 bag (5 ounces) baby spinach, 2 cups strawberries, trimmed and halved, and 1 small sweet red pepper, cored and cut into strips.
  • In a small bowl, whisk 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 2 teaspoons honey, 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. While whisking, pour in 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil.
  • Mix in 1/2 teaspoon snipped fresh chives, if desired. Pour over salad and toss. Transfer to a platter, top with 1/2 cup walnuts and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
