Easy and delicious for a quick lunch. I eyeballed the ingredients using just enough for one person. I topped it off with tuna salad and lightly drizzled the Italian dressing on top. I also left the melba toast on the side. Overall, a nice assortment of colors, flavors, and textures - plus it tastes pretty good too!

This was a quick salad I threw together last night to go with a homemade sausage pizza. I cheated and used a organic salad blend and half a package of fresh spinach. I did not use a whole red onion, just part of one (I was feeding my kids and husband--they aren't real big fans of red onion) and I made my own creamy italian dressing. I did NOT toss the dressing with the salad, I served it on the side. I didn't have melba toast, I used Texas Toast croutons instead. We enjoyed this salad, especially me. I went back for seconds.


Well chosen assortment of ingredients - colorful, varied and nutritious. I varied the ingredients only slightly, and used garlic croutons and a homemade vinaigrette. One criticism - use the dressing with discretion, and to your own taste!. If one was to add as much as directed each serving would include a half cup of dressing!
