Craving Something Healthy!

I was craving something healthy for dinner tonight since I have eaten like crap for the last couple of weeks! I was actually going to make this salad for Thanksgiving dinner but totally forgot!! It came out of Rachael Ray's magazine (of course). I changed it up a little though with ingredients that I thought would make the salad better!! If you want the original recipe it can be found here.

Autumn Greens and Apple Salad
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
½ small onion finely chopped
Fresh Ground Pepper
Garlic Powder
3 ribs celery finely chopped
2 crisp Gala Apples sliced thine;y
1 small head red leaf lettuce, torn into small pieces (about 8 cups)
1/2 small head green leaf lettuce, torn into small pieces (about 4 cups)
Feta Cheese for topping

In a large salad bowl, whisk together the olive oil, vinegar, shallot, salt, fresh ground pepper and garlic powder (I just added the salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste). Add the celery and apples and toss. Add the lettuces and toss again. Top with Feta cheese.

  1. I forgot about this! Wow, what a refreshing salad. I enjoyed this even though it was suppose to be for Thanksgiving and we had it a couple days later.
