This week our weather is kicking it in to high gear again. We were in the 50’s this last week, and this week it may even hit 90 degrees. It’s crazy – I’m not quite ready yet for summer weather! It seems as if every year I vow to be in better shape before the season begins, and every year I am not quite where I’d like to be, but I continue to make little changes to keep me moving in the right direction.
I’ve mentioned before that when the weather warms up we eat a lot more salads. They are easy and so versatile that I could pretty much eat one for lunch any day and not complain.
In fact, I made this Bacon Mango Salad the other day and it’s always one of my favorites. How could you go wrong with bacon? There is also mixed greens, mango, pecans, and feta cheese. I top it off with a poppy seed dressing and it’s always wonderful!
A lot of the time I’ll drink iced tea with my lunch, but every once in a while I’ll get a craving for a glass of soda. I rarely drink pop anymore, but when I do it’s almost always one of the TEN Calorie sodas that can be found at Safeway. They’re guilt free and taste really good!
Here are the measurements to make a large dinner salad or two smaller side salads:
- 2.5 -3 cups of mixed baby greens
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 1/2 cup diced mango
- 1/3 cup feta cheese
- 1/2 cup crumbled bacon
- Dressing of your choice
What are some of your favorite salads to make?
