Salad season

I'm pretty excited about all the new salads I have been creating. Yes almost every night I am in the kitchen whipping up a salad with a new twist. Tonights salad was another big hit.
Recipe: Summer salad (fat free dressing)
big bunch of baby spring mix
several splashes of white wine vinegar
several spashes of pomegranate juice
a hand full of each
1- sliced red onion
2-sliced strawberries
3-sliced canalope
4-walnut pieces
season salt to taste
I have also started making my own granola since it only takes minutes to make and I can control the ingredients and save money at the same time.
Recipe: Sugar free Tasty Granola
4 cups oatmeal
1/4 cup grape seed oil
1/3 cup natural apple sauce
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
optional-raisins, any dried fruit, nuts, seeds, or coconut
mix together in big bowl then spread out onto baking sheet with a liner
bake at 3:50 for 15 minutes
let cool and eat YUMMY
Hope you try some of these ideas and enjoy them.
