Mixed Veggie Salad w/ Browned Garlic

Mixed Veggie Salas w/ Browned Garlic by Custom Taste

In our home we like to eat healthy and load veggies in wherever we can, but sometimes we will get a hankering for a salad. Most people would either think "boring" or "not filling enough for me", however we love to dress up our salads to where they move from side show to main attraction. With a simple and tasty dressing this salad has all the health benefits plus it won't leave you hungry 30 minutes later. This salad is loaded in heart friendly vitamins and fiber, so you're body will thank you for this refreshing twist on the a would be normal and boring salad. Not to mention that it smells incredible, however a quick breath mint afterwards will keep people from running.

-We used frozen fresh spinach which helped meld all the taste together into the dressing
-If you have kids that you want to try this salad, chop the lettuce into bigger pieces so it is easier for them to grab or pick up with their fork.
