My Favorite Summer Salad Recipe | Cooking at Home with Stretching a Buck
  • Mixed Salad Greens (I like organic spring mix)
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Yellow Bell Pepper
  • Orange Bell Pepper
  • Red Onion
  • Cucumber
  • Dried Cranberries
  • Feta Cheese
  • Note: Eyeball the amount of veggies that you chop based on the number of salads you are making. For 2 people I typically chop ½ of each pepper, ¼ of a large red onion and ¼ cucumber. Expect leftovers.
  1. Rinse salad greens, set aside.
  2. Rinse and dice peppers.
  3. Finely dice red onion.
  4. Peel cucumber and dice.
  5. Layer salad greens in a large bowl or on individual plates. Sprinkle on peppers and cucumber. Top with red onion, dried cranberries and feta cheese. Serve with your favorite salad dressing.
  6. To eat as an entree, add protein of your choice. I love this salad with grilled chicken, steak and turkey burgers.
