Spring Salad

This is a simple salad with simple ingredients yet bursts with flavor. I used whatever ingredients I had on hand and dressed it up with some balsamic vinaigrette. Makes a great accompaniment to any cuisine or meal. The unique ingredient in this salad is the grapenut cereal. I got this idea from the cereal carton. It makes a great salad topping because it gives a crunch to the salad and also a nutty flavor and it is nutritious as well.

Ingredients
Lettuce
Olives
Tomatoes
Cucumber
Avocado
Raisins/Dried Cranberries
Grapenut cereal - 1 tablespoon
Balsamic Vinaigrette

Prepare all the ingredients. Dice the tomatoes, avocado and cucumber. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients and add the vinaigrette and toss well.

Serve chilled.
