Everything Salad

This salad can serve as a side or as the lunch or dinner, especially if you add lean chicken, ham or turkey. The ingredient amount can be altered depending on the size of your salad bowl; what is listed here is intended for an extra large size bowl. I always take this to pot lucks.

Ingredients:

5 cups of a variety of greens such as young dandelion, lamb’s quarter, mint, *spinach, etc.
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 cup green beans
1 cup sweet corn
*1 cup sweet peas
*1 cup shredded carrots
1 cup sliced mushrooms
*1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 quarter cup sunflower seeds
*3 sliced hard boiled eggs; try duck or turkey egg
1-2 avocados, sliced
*1/2 cup pickled beets
*1 quarter cup black olives

Add all ingredients to a large bowl. Ingredients can be changed depending on what you like. We prefer Lite Italian dressing, although many people prefer it “dry.”

He maintains 5-6% level of body fat. Go to http://www.cbass.com/ for much information about his diet and exercise.
