Slimming Harvest Salad with Fat Burning Vinaigrette ;)


I love big salads and I eat them a lot for lunch or dinner.  It is a really fun way to get creative by mixing up textures, tastes, and ingredients.  This salad is Thanksgiving inspired-so easy and delicious!  The creamy, crunchy, sweet, and salty elements pair perfectly with the veggies.  I topped it with my yummy vinaigrette which is a killer combination of ingredients which have been highly regarded for their fat burning qualities in numerous studies.  This tangy and sweet vinaigrette is so good and so good for you.  Plus it only has 3 ingredients too!  So easy!!



*3 cups spring mix (tear it up into tiny pieces with your hands)

*3 stalks or 100 grams celery (chopped small)

*6 slices or 112 grams of lean turkey (use some leftover Thanksgiving turkey instead if you want to!)

*1 ounce goat cheese

*1/8 cup or 20 grams reduced sugar dried cranberries

*1 tablespoon chopped pecans

*1/4 tablespoon organic extra virgin, unrefined coconut oil

*1 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar (with the mother)

*1 packet or 1 teaspoon zero calorie sweetener of your choice (I used Truvia)


Toss the spring mix and celery in a large bowl. Top with the chopped turkey, crumbled goat cheese, cranberries, and pecans.

To make vinaigrette melt the coconut oil in microwave. Whisk in apple cider vinegar and sweetener. Pour evenly over salad and enjoy!!


Makes one huge serving of salad and dressing!
