Found this recipe in Shape Magazine and thought I'd give it a try. It is a flavorful and healthy salad and is one of my DH's favorites. Sometimes I add bean sprouts, wontons or crispy rice sticks.

This was a great easy lunch on a rainy lazy day. I halved it for dh and me and our 5 year old (who will only eat a bit). Instead of the romaine and baby spinach mix I used some lovely organic baby greens and added teh cabbage. I didn't have dijon but used spicy brown mustard instead. To these salads I added a cooked diced chicken breast for protein. A really great lunch!
