Raspberry and Tomato Salad Recipe

Raspberry and Tomato Salad

Source

Who doesn't love a nice simple salad for a meal? Salads are a great way to eat light but yet feel full.

One day I wanted to make a salad for lunch, but I also was feeling very creative. I went through the fruits and vegetables in my fridge, and found whatever I wanted to try in a combination of a salad. I didn't want to make it too complicated because I just wanted to make something quick to eat… and that would be healthy too.

My family started getting me hooked on raspberries and I wanted to find some way to include them in a quick meal I created. This Raspberry and Tomato Salad is the result of that creative meal. I added up the amount of calories and found it to be quite healthy after all. I decided to share the recipe to my creative salad with all of you. Hope you enjoy it!

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, first add the 3 leaves of lettuce - lettuce of your choice, either Iceberg or Romaine. Slice it into bite sized slivers small enough to toss.
  2. Then, cut up the 3 cherry tomatoes into quarters, and add them into the salad.
  3. Take 4 or 5 raspberries, wash and add them to the salad.
  4. To the salad, add about a 1/4 cup of matchstick carrots. Break them up before adding to the salad.
  5. Lastly, add in the shredded mozzarella cheese. I use Sargento Chef Style shredded Mozzarella cheese because it's already shredded nicely for me.
  6. As for salad dressing, you may choose to use whatever your heart desires. My favorite to use with this salad is Ranch dressing.

Overall, I hope you enjoy this salad I have created. Mangia, Mangia. Buon appetito! :)
