Autumn Salad Number Four

 salad greens

diced cabbage

sliced celery

sweet onion or french fried onion rings

cucumber diced

bacon pieces

cheddar cheese

ranch salad dressing

This uses foods that keep fresh for a long time, are in season in the fall, and it has lots of healthy filling fiber.

Tip for keeping celery fresh for 2-3 weeks:

Leave it in the store package.  Place that in a plastic grocery bag and roll up so it's wrapped around itself; secure w/ a rubber band or place flat so it won't come unrolled.  Celery will stay crisp for a long time.

Autumn Salad Number Three

mixed salad greens

pineapple chunks

grated cheddar

sliced almonds

bacon pieces

sesame oil salad dressing


Salad dressing recipe: 
  •  5 TB mayo
  • 2 TB honey
  • 1 TB white vinegar
  • 1 tsp honey mustard
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil 
Combine with whisk until smooth.
If you don't have honey, you can substitute sugar.
