Simple Summer Salad

Hi friends!  I hope your week is going well and you're enjoying the start of August.  Unfortunately, August doesn't bring the start of fall... summer temperatures continue and  sometimes in the summer, you just want a salad.  This salad is quick, easy and it never disappoints. 

Love these

Simple Summer Salad


2 cups romaine lettuce (or spinach!)
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 oz goat cheese
2 tbsp balsamic vinaigrette 

1.  Rinse lettuce, unless you are feeling fancy and using pre-washed.  
2. Toss with balsamic vinaigrette 
3. Add sunflower seeds, cranberries & goat cheese (I love the single-serving versions from TJ's)

*If you are taking this salad to work, I suggest packing everything individually*

What's your favorite simple salad?
