Christmas Salad

  • Chopped lettuce
  • Spinach, remove the stems
  • Mandarin oranges, drained
  • Pomegranate seeds or grapes
  • Cubed cheddar and Colby cheese*
  • Black olives
  • Poppy seed dressing*
  • Red onion, chopped (to taste)


Mix ingredients. Adding as much of each item as you like to taste. Suggestion: add onions just before serving to decrease potency.

*Use a light or fat-free cheese. Fat-free is hard to find in a cubed form versus shredded. Try a low-fat poppy seed dressing.
