Mixed Baby Greens with Strawberries & Kiwi Salad becomes a dinner salad with chicken strips or braised tofu cubes, sunflower seeds, and shredded low fat cheese. Tofu takes on whatever flavors are present which might be the dressing which is built-in the recipe. At our family dinner table, I often serve a variety of protein items separately so that my favorite people can make choices. One of my faves is low fat Feta.
1 16 oz container strawberries
1 small shallot, chopped
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp orange juice
2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
1 5 oz container mixed baby greens
2 kiwis, peeled and cut into 1/2 in pieces
1/4 cup loosely packed mint leaves
1. Make dressing by coarsely chopping 6 strawberries. Cut remaining berries into quarters and set aside. Puree chopped berries, shallot, vinegar, orange juice, olive oil, honey, and salt in food processor or blender.
2. Combine greens, quartered strawberries, and kiwi in a large bowl. Drizzle with dressing. Serve at once.
