    Summer Salads

    With summer coming I always make more salads.
    I am sure we all do.

    I try and change my salads and add many different colorful items
    such as nuts, raisins, cranberries most fruits to the most common greens. 
    Using  olive oil rather than thick high calories
    dressings so final count stays low.
    Topping some salads either with grated cheese, a few garlic croutons.
    Add some chicken, egg or tuna on top.

    A meal on its own.
