Super Stuffed Salad

I love a good from a bowl so enormous that you don't know if you can eat it all. I've had an iffy appetite lately, but know I need to eat. I've made such strides in my food transition based on all of this knowledge I have been devouring (har har) from reading Michael Pollan, as well as watching so many food/agricultural-based documentaries. Something I didn't want to happen was to have my funk throw me off track and lead me back to soda, snack foods and processed comfort foods. Tonight I made a great big salad that filled a pie dish and it was delicious!

It included: fresh spring mix greens from the co-op, locally raised/free range chicken cooked in olive oil and garlic, avocado, locally grown apple, cucumber, raw sunflower seeds and raspberry-pomegranate dressing (added after the photo).

yum that looks good. I've been making big salads like this, too. I use an entire head of romaine for one salad and I always make it in a pie dish too! haha

Your salad looks so good! The dressing sounds delicious... I'll have to keep my eye out for something like that :)

The dressing is Ken's Raspberry Pomegranate Vinaigrette. I also love it drizzled over a fruit salad in place of the lemon juice. I keep a bottle at home and another at work!
