Pecan Feta Green Salad With Lemon Garlic Dressing

pecan feta green salad

I have chosen to make something a little more healthier as I’ve been baking a lot this holiday season. I love salads that have a lot of flavor and crunch, so I always add some sort of nut like pecans or almonds as a topping. The addition of cheese always makes a salad even tastier! This pecan feta green salad is comparable to a Greek salad minus a few ingredients. The amount you make is up to you, but my recipe serves one. That’s me!

Ingredients

4 cups chopped romaine lettuce

1 medium tomato

1/2 chopped cucumber

1/4 cup reduced fat feta

1/4 cup pecans

1/4 cup lemon juice

2-3 tablespoons olive oil

salt and pepper

1 garlic clove minced

Directions

Rinse your romaine lettuce in a salad spinner or colander. Chop your tomato and cucumber and all three to a large mixing bowl. Sprinkle with pecans, and feta cheese.  Drizzle as much as you like of your lemon garlic dressing.  Toss well, and place in a salad bowl. It’s as easy as that! Enjoy!

Lemon Garlic Dressing

Mince your garlic by hand on a cutting board, or use a garlic press. Add to a small bowl. Next add your lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Taste your dressing. If you need more salt, add it. You may also want more lemon, or garlic. Stir well, and add to salad.

Some other ingredients you may add:

red onion

avocado

dried cranberries

fresh fruit

pumpkin seeds

your favorite dressing

tuna, chicken, or fish

different cheese

croutons
