A fresh salad with all the stuff I really like! Enjoy with your favorite dressing.

Recipe Ingredients for The Ultimate Salad

12 cups romaine lettuce
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
3/4 cup black olives, sliced
1 cup grape tomatoes
1 large cucumber, sliced
1 cup croutons
2 cups black eyed peas
1 cup broccoli, chopped

Recipe Directions for The Ultimate Salad

  1. If I'm going for presentation, I layer the ingredients in a big bowl.

  2. First I lay down the spinach.

  3. Then the tomatoes.

  4. Then I arrange the cucumber slices in concentric circles around the bowl.

  5. Then the olives and cheese go on.

  6. Finally, I top with the croutons and walnuts.

  7. There's lots of room for flexibility here - you can also add hard-boiled egg, which goes a long way for presentation, or switch out the walnuts for sunflower seeds, pine nuts, or almonds - whatever you like!
