Total Time:
10 mins
4 cups


  • 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 (1/2 oz.)


  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 1/2 tsp. minced garlic, 1/4 tsp. dried thyme, and 1/8 tsp. each salt and pepper. Slowly whisk in 1/4 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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
