Healthful Salad

Continuing our walks, I am continuing with the salad experiments. And with the weather getting progressively warmer, I am totally okay with this!

Healthful Salad

Choice of dark green lettuce
One cucumber, peeled and cubed
Handful of grape tomatoes, halved
One bell pepper, diced
One avocado, diced
5 radishes, sliced
One peach, cubed
3 pineapple slices, cubed
One small can of mandarin oranges, drained
Handful of strawberries, sliced
Half of a red onion, chopped

Mix all of the above in a large bowl, and pour on the dressing:

2 t. mustard
6 T. lemon juice
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. white pepper
3 T. canola oil
1 T. parsley
1/2 t. dill
1/4 t. tarragon
1/4 t. basil

Mix well and pour over salad.

Mix the dressing into the salad until well coated. Cover and chill under serving time. Serve. Enjoy.

Got mixed reviews. Hubby didn't care for it, son loved it. Next time I would leave out the cucumber and cut back on the lemon juice. Otherwise, I liked it, too.
