Winter Party Salad --- TTC #3

Fill large serving bowl half full of  Spring Mix Salad mix and add 1 head Romain lettuce chopped.
1 can pink grapefruit (well drained),
1-2 cups red onion, carrots, cucumber and celery (sliced)
1/8 cup sunflower seeds or pine nuts, 
1/4 cup raisins
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 handful of rice noddles
*homemade balsamic vinaigrette (recipe below)

To assemble the salad,  I place everything in a large bowl, put on the lid and shake to coat all lettuce with the dressing. Then serve on plate or in a salad bowl.
Ingredients for homemade balsamic vinaigrette
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp  Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1-2 Tbsp white wine or water
  • 2 Tbsp honey mustard
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  1. Place all ingredients into a small jar. Anything with a lid works well.
  2. Shake to mix thoroughly. Stores in fridge for 1-2 week
