Cheese and Mushroom Salad

Cheese and Mushroom Salad

I love a good salad and yesterday I was craving something healthy and filling so I put together this one with the ingredients that I had on hand, and I think it turned out really delicious!  If I would have had some spinach than I probably would have used that instead, and I also think it'd be great with shredded chicken on top.  So you can play around with the ingredients a little.  Try this out for dinner one day this week and let me know what you think!


1 head romaine lettuce, chopped [spinach would also be good]

1/2 red onion, sliced

1 1/2 c. mushrooms, sliced

1/2 c. fresh parmesan cheese grated [swiss cheese would also be good]

1/2 c. dried cranberries

3/4 c. cottage cheese, drained

1/2 c. toasted slivered almonds

In a large serving bowl, toss together lettuce, onion, and mushrooms.  The garnish the top with cheese, craisins, and almonds.  Just before serving fold in drained cottage cheese and dressing.



2 Tbsp. sugar [or other artificial sweetener, I use Splenda]

2 tsp. dried mustard

2/3 c. apple cider vinegar

1 c. vegetable oil

1 tsp. kosher salt

1 tsp. coarse black pepper

Combine dressing ingredients in blender and store in refrigerator.  Toss all other salad ingredients together in bowl and then top with dressing.  Serve and enjoy!
