Six Satisifying Salads (Without Lettuce!)
When the weather gets warmer, I'm content to eat raw whole foods, but I tire of lettuce based salads and they rarely keep me full until the next meal. Here are 6 alternatives that I've made with fresh Italian cheeses and produce! If you have allergies to nuts or dairy or [gasp] don't eat bacon, my sympathies.
|The reddest of tomatoes, real mozzerella cheese, and fresh basil leaves. Top with either extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar or just plain ol' salt and pepper.|
|Spinach leaves, 2 pieces leftover breakfast bacon, pecans, and fresh strawberries. Toss with a tsp of olive oil.|
|Fresh peaches, ricotta cheese, pine nuts, and a dash of cinnamon.|
