Magnificent Multi Veggie Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

Okay, you get it. Jon and I love to eat… and we eat well, in my humble opinion. The down side to all of the yummy food is an increasingly expanding mid section. Sigh. After a brief oh-my-gosh moment upon stepping on the scale earlier this week, I had a minor meltdown and issued this decree: We must focus more on making healthy choices. I wasn’t sure if it registered with Jon, but when I arrived home last night, he had prepared a magnificent salad for dinner. If he keeps this up, we will be back to our fighting weights in no time.

  • 1 bag favorite mixed greens. (We used a Romaine and cabbage mix)
  • 4 radishes, sliced
  • 1/3 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 jicama, diced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes with green chiles, drained
  • 1 can corn
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 can black beans, drained
  • 1 small container of Feta cheese
  • Lime juice
  • Olive oil
  • Honey
  • Chili powder
Mix together veggies and cheese and set aside. In a small bowl whip together lime juice, olive oil and honey (measure to taste). Pour juice mixture over salad and mix in chili powder and refrigerate for 1 hour.
