KP Summer Salad

June 11, 2010

There are literally thousands of ways to toss a salad, but every now and then I stumble upon a combo that tastes particularly good. So I make it again and again and it becomes a family favorite–like this summer salad. Loaded with fresh summer veggies, this salad is colorful, healthy, and compliments any meal. Or top with Balsamic Grilled Chicken for a complete meal. I don’t list ingredient amounts below, so toss together as much as ya like!

Iceberg lettuce
Ripe red tomatoes, chopped
Cucumbers, diced
Carrots, shredded
Yellow bell peppers, chopped
Green onions, chopped
Pine nuts
Parmesan cheese, freshly grated


  • Toss all ingredients together in a large bowl and top with dressing of choice. I recommend Good Seasons Italian Dressing, made with high quality extra virgin olive oil, white wine vinegar, and a teaspoon of dijon mustard.
