If you are aspiring to lose weight or to eat more vegetables, eating salad is a great choice. You can eat salad at least 3 days a week. Sometimes I eat salad everyday for a week, but then I take a "salad break" and eat other vegetables. I prefer using balsamic vinaigrette or Italian dressing.
Here's how to prepare a delicious Mountain Salad.

3 large handfuls of spinach
1 1/2 Roma tomatoes
2 tbs. goat cheese

1. Rinse spinach, even if the packaging says it was pre-washed

3. Chop tomatoes into small pieces
