From Dr. Weil's Optimum Health Plan: Get your free health assessment now!
Choose mixed salad greens whenever you can. Or mix romaine lettuce with spinach or any other dark green variety. Romaine by itself is fine, but the darker the greens, the more antioxidants they contain. If you find balsamic vinegar too strong for your taste, pick a milder vinegar like apple cider.
Ingredients:2 cups salad greens
1 tsp olive oil (preferably extra virgin)
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp Italian or other seasoning mix
Whisk the dressing together and toss with the greens.
Add any chopped vegetables you have on hand.
