Salad time

We love salads.I love to make different salads atleast a few times a week.This weekend I made a salad with a very simple homemade dressing which turned out really good.The recipe follows.............

1 packet pre-washed salad mix.
1 medium cucumber
1 medium tomato
1/2 red onion(thinly sliced)
1/2 cup dry roasted almonds(sliced)
1/2 cup fat-free croutons
1/2 cup grapes(cut in half)
1/2 cup mandarin oranges(small segments)

Salad dressing:
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp spicy brown mustard
1 tbsp lemon juice
salt and pepper to taste
mix it well together with a whisk and keep it aside for 5 mins.

Take a large salad bowl and put all the ingredients in the bowl.Toss to mix them well.
Drizzle with the dressing just before serving.This salad tastes better if it is kept cold in the refrigerator.You can also put it in individual bowls and then drizzle the dressing .I usually serve this salad with a grilled or toasted chicken sandwich.
