I am in love with a salad…


I know…It is strange.  It is wrong.  I mean, I am a married woman….but alas, I am in love with a salad.  I have been making this AMAZING salad lately.  It has a half can of mandarin oranges, a generous sprinkling of chopped walnuts, cheese, dried cranberries and is topped with ranch dressing.  The lettuce: leafy romaine.  The result:  OMG Wowness.  It is amazing and SOOOO good for you.  Fruits, veggies, nuts, dairy….what wouldn’t be good about it??  So I must confess that I am totally and hopelessly in love with this salad.  Don’t tell my husband…. 🙂
