What's cooking? Wednesday - Southwest Chopped Salad

Southwest Chopped Salad
My husband is still exploring life without meat, wheat, dairy and sugar and I am still trying to come up with creative ways to satisfy his nutritional needs while not becoming boring.   It's amazing how much I miss macaroni and cheese and chocolate chip cookies  :)

Oh well, both my husband and I are seeing results from our new healthier lifestyle.  That's whats important, right?  I sure hope so!

This main dish salad was really good, filling and definitely not boring.  On a warm summer day, give it a try!

Southwest Chopped Salad  (you don't need to be exact with the ingredients creative!)
1 head romaine lettuce, chopped
2-3 tomatoes, chopped
1 bell pepper (red, yellow or green), chopped
1 cucumber, chopped
1 avocado, chopped
1 small or 1/2 large red onion, chopped
1 handful black or green olives, chopped
1 can white or black beans, rinsed and drained
1 handful raw or roasted almonds, chopped

Combine all ingredients with almonds sprinkled on top.  Serve with salsa and sour cream or greek yogurt (if you are ok with dairy).  Dig in!
