My Red Salad
2 cups Greens - dandelions, red leaf, black seeded simpson, oak leaf, romaine, beet leaves, radicchio or other greens you have on hand.
1 Cup Roasted Chicken - shredded
1/2 cup Red Grapes & Red Raspberries
1/2 Tomato - thinly sliced
1/2 Cup Roasted Red Peppers
1/4 Cup Pablano Pepper - chopped
1 Green Onion - sliced thinly
1/4 Cup Red Wine Vinegar & Raspberry Walnut Dressing - mixed
1/2 Cup Mozzarella & Cheddar Cheese -mixed & shredded
1/2 Avocado -sliced
1 Tablespoon Flax Seeds

Start with the lettuce greens, radicchio, dandelion leaves on the plate.
Add the green onion and all the rest of the toppings, ending with the dressing. I take the sliced avocado and put the flax seeds on half of each slice. I then put the grapes on the side. These on the side make this salad a bit easier to eat.
 This  is one of my very favorite Summer Salads when my garden is in full swing. Harvesting the vegetables in the am, making it up and popping it into the refrigerator ensures a great dinner time salad!
