Desert Island Green Salad

Total Time

Cook 0 mins

A very simple salad with unique ingredients and a dressing that pulls it all together. When I'm all out of "standard" ingredients (i.e. salad veggies), it forces my creativity to surface or go hungry!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash, dry and break apart lettuce in a large bowl.
  2. Sprinkle with pineapple, peanuts and red onion.
  3. Set aside and make the dressing by mixing all of the dressing ingredients together in a bowl or shaker.
  4. Serve dressing with salad.

I only made the dressing and improvised on the salad but it was delicious! I ran out yesterday and need to get to the store for more mayonaise. Great dressing for the upcoming summer months!!! Thanks!

I can't believe this salad has sat here un-reviewed for four years! It is such a delicious salad. Very simple and so different. The flavors are all pulled together with this delicious dressing. I could see using this dressing on other salads as well. I used lowfat mayonnaise and Estee fructose sweetener instead of regular sugar so it's lowfat and low sugar as well. Thanks for posting, it will definitely be a repeat in my family. Pam
