Here is a simple salad when cooking for one in the summer heat. I personally come home from work famished and this salad is sweet, crispy, and filling when you add chicken (try shredding a rotisserie or even pre-made Short Cuts by Purdue)
*Lettuce (from a bag obvi, I LOVE Butter Lettuce)
*Green Grapes (cut in half)
*Walnuts (or any other nut you prefer, try the candied nuts you can buy from Emerald in your local grocery store, or make them yourself using a recipe such as this one)
*Strawberry Vinaigrette (or any fruity dressing)
*Splash of Balsamic Vinegar
The mixture of the salty nuts, sweet grapes, crispy lettuce, and tangy craisins simply tastes like summer, not to mention the bright colors which studies say help you enjoy a meal more and make you feel more satisfied when finished!
