  • 3 cups spring mix salad greens
  • 2 tablespoons lemon vinaigrette, divided (see Tip)
  • ¼ cup steamed green beans
  • ¼ cup diced cooked baby potatoes
  • ¼ cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 large hard-boiled egg, sliced
  • ½ ounce pitted Kalamata olives
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese ( ½ oz.)

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Toss salad greens with 1 Tbsp. plus 1 tsp. vinaigrette and place on a 9-inch plate.
  2. Gently toss green beans and potatoes with the remaining 2 tsp. vinaigrette; arrange on top of the salad greens. Top with tomatoes, egg, olives, and feta and serve.
  • Tip: To make a quick homemade lemon vinaigrette, whisk 2 Tbsp. lemon juice with ½ tsp. minced garlic, ¼ tsp. dried thyme, and ⅛ tsp. each salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil until blended. Extra dressing will keep, covered, in the refrigerator, for up to 5 days. Bring to room temperature before using.

Very light and fresh. I added champagne vinegar to the vinaigrette recipe. Delicious alternative to my usual salads. Will make again!
