A Superb Summer Salad
Don’t you just love enjoying all the fresh produce of summer? This salad is a colorful celebration of that produce. It starts with dark leafy greens, which have been shown to be great anti-agers, then red ripe strawberries, which are a great source of fiber and Vitamin C. Red onion is the perfect compliment with its flavorful bite and cancer-fighting compounds! Top all this off with some sliced almonds, which are full of nutrients such as heart healthy fats, Vitamin E, and even Calcium, and some creamy, tangy goat’s cheese, which is naturally lower in fat than harder cheeses. What you have when you’re finished is an easy way to tickle your taste buds with both nutrition and flavor!

1 bag pre-washed spring mix salad

½ large red onion, sliced
½ cup sliced almonds
¼ cup crumbled goat’s cheese
