My Awesome Salad!

So the other day I made this really yummy salad that's easy. Super healthy and natural. The apples in it were a HUGE hit, My big 5 qt. metal bowl filled to the top was all eaten. Anyway, enough talk, let's eat.

1 1/2 heads of Romain Lettuce
2 large handfuls of Spinach
1 large giant Tomato
1 Fuji Apple

Wash all produce. Chop Romain into bite size pieces and place in bowl. Dice the Tomatoes and the Apples into about 1/2 inch cubes. Place Spinach, Apples, and tomatoes in bowl. Mix.

1 cup basic Italian Dressing
1/3 cup Olive Oil
1 Lemon
7-10 stems of Parsley
4-5 stems of Cilantro

Chop Parsley and Cilantro into tiny pieces. Michael showed me a great trick of using our nut chopper to accomplish this much faster than with a knife. Squeeze all the Lemon juice into a bowl. Add Italian Dressing, Olive Oil, Parsley, and Cilantro to Lemon bowl and whisk.

Pour dressing over the salad mixture and toss. Then you're done! It's delicious and healthy.
