FIVE-INGREDIENT AVOCADO, BLEU CHEESE, AND
PECAN SALAD
Ridiculously low in sugar but packed with full-on flavors, this simple salad is rich in
healthy fats, thanks to the avocado and pecans. And both are a great match for rich,
creamy bleu cheese, which adds a dose of decadence to the mix. Dress this salad with
Quick Raspberry Vinaigrette and serve it as a light lunch, or add cooked, cubed
chicken or shrimp for a more satiating meal.
INGREDIENTS
2 cups (65 g) mixed salad greens, loosely packed
2 cups (60 g) fresh spinach leaves, loosely packed
1 medium Hass avocado, peeled, pitted, and cubed
1/4 cup (60 g) crumbled unpasteurized bleu cheese 1/3 cup (60 g) chopped toasted
pecans Yield: 2 servings
Arrange all the ingredients on a serving plate (or in a mason jar, for a portable
version). Store in the fridge until ready to serve. Serve with Quick Raspberry
Vinaigrette, or your favorite tangy salad dressing.

GREEK SALAD WITH CHICKEN AND STRAWBERRIES
The perfect lunch for a sunny summer’s day, this classic Greek salad gets freshened up
with a scattering of juicy strawberries. But it’s still plenty filling, thanks to the cooked
chicken and tangy feta cheese. If you’re taking it with you for lunch—on a picnic,
perhaps?—be sure to store the salad and the dressing in separate containers to keep
the salad from wilting.
INGREDIENTS
FOR THE SALAD:
1 head iceberg lettuce, cut into thin strips
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 English cucumber, thinly sliced 4 small tomatoes, cut into wedges
16 black Kalamata olives
4 ounces (115 g) feta cheese, cubed
4 ounces (115 g) cooked chicken, cubed
7 ounces (200 g) fresh strawberries, cut into wedges
OTHER INGREDIENTS:
1/4 cup (60 ml) Fantastic French Dressing, to serve Yield: 4 servings
Arrange the ingredients on four serving plates in the given order. Serve
immediately with Fantastic French Dressing.
TIP: Make this a classic Greek salad by omitting the chicken, increasing the amount of
feta to 7 ounces (200 g), and omitting the strawberries (although the strawberries do
add a fresh, summery, succulent taste).
NOTE: Feeling fruity? For a merrier, berrier version of this salad, serve it with the Quick
Raspberry Vinaigrette.
