Amy’s Favorite Salad

Posted on

This is my favorite salad as of now. The recipe software says it is 5 fats and that does concern me. But the calories aren’t so bad and this is a delicious and filling salad. I use Aldi’s raspberry vinaigrette.


1 cup butter lettuce leaves
1 cup lettuce, spring greens
1/3 cup blueberries
1 ounce chicken breast, grilled
1 ounce pecans, chopped
1 tablespoon vinaigrette, raspberry

Place lettuce in a bowl and top with blueberries and chicken. Drizzle vinaigrette over top and mix well. Sprinkle with pecans.

Serves 1.

About Amy

Recently I came to an ugly realization–I am middle aged. I didn’t really think so but then I doubled my age and thought, “Hmmmm…some of people don’t live to that age. I must be middle age.” This epiphany came in the third quarter of my 39th year. So I am surviving middle age…it’s scary.
