We normally keep romaine lettuce in the house for a quick salad. Our go-to salad is Caesar, as it requires few ingredients and little work. We are not big fans of a garden salad. It reminds me of the Pizza Hut salad bar.
While shopping for our usual staples in the produce department, I realized that we had enough fun things to put together a more interesting salad. Let me know what you think.
2 Romaine Lettuce Hearts
2 granny smith apples
1 small red onion
1 container of crumbled blue cheese
½ cup of walnuts
Lite Poppy seed dressing, homemade or storebought (I used Maple Grove Farms Fat Free Poppyseed).
Wash and chop Romaine hearts. I cut mine in ½ inch rings.
Wash and chop granny smith apples in bite sized pieces. No need to peel the apples.
Peel red onion. Cut in half and then in rings.
Place the lettuce, apples and onion in large bowl. Pour in container of blue cheese crumbles.
If walnuts are too big, crush slightly with bottom of a thick glass. Add to bowl.
Pour on dressing and toss when ready to serve.
