My everyday salad! Use this "recipe" for my house salad as a guide to building your own simple salad to eat with your favorite meals. 


  • 6-8 cups salad greens (my favorites are arugula, baby spinach, field greens/spring mix and butter lettuce)
  • 1/2 cup sliced red onion 
  • 1/3 cup shaved/grated parmesan
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • Lemon Garlic Vinaigrette 


  1. Add salad ingredients to a large bowl, or 4 individual bowls (or plates!). Drizzle with your favorite dressing and toss. Enjoy!


  • If you don't have some kind of salad dressing laying around, you can make one on the spot - no new dishes required! Just drizzle on 3 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon vinegar (like red wine or balsamic) or lemon juice and a sprinkle of salt and pepper!
