Quick Romaine Salad

 I love fresh salads,I usually eat salads in the night instead of a heavy meal,it helps me go to bed feeling lighter and waking up lighter.This can be paired with a fresh baked chicken or fish fillet.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Serving: 2-3 cups

2 cups finely chopped romaine lettuce
1-2 teaspoons balsamic vinaigrette(see recipe below,also available in trader joes)
1 tablespoon grated Carrots
1 tablespoon grated beetroot
1 tablespoon mixed nuts( I like the omega trial mix snack size packs in trader joes)
1.Take the chopped romaine lettuce in a bowl.

2.Add the grated carrots to it.

3.Add the grated beetroot to it.

4.Add the nuts.

5.Add the balsamic vinaigrette and toss.

Balsamic vinaigrette

1 Tablespoon dark Balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoon warm water
pinch salt
pinch black pepper
1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil

1.Whisk all ingredients together until emulsified.

Salads taste best when the vegetables are fresh and have the crunch in them.To test if romaine is fresh or not,look at the bottom of the leaf(root)-it should not be pink in color.If it is pink it has already started getting bad and will not taste good.
