September Salad: Day 2

Still using ingredients from my fridge today's salad consisted of mixed greens, strawberries, feta, candied almonds and Newman's Own Light Raspberry Walnut dressing. Now before you say "That salad isn't healthy you put candied almonds on it!" stop yourself. I used light dressing & low fat cheese. The amount of sugar used to candy the almonds isn't going to make that big of a difference in the long run. I'm getting so many other nutrients such as fiber, vitamin c, calcium, Ect. I'm not too worried about the small amount of candied nuts on this salad (it looks like there's a lot more than there actually are). Plus they taste so so so good.

If you want to play along with me please do! The only rule is to eat a salad everyday for breakfast or lunch for all of September. I don't even care if the salad comes from Wendy's. If you do decide to do it let me know. And if you have any great salad suggestions please pass them along!
