mmmmmmmmm Salad. One of my favorite foods. Salads are traditionally low calorie, low fat, low sugar, etc... it's what you put ON the salad that makes it soooo wonderfully tasty and fattening too. This salad is fantastic year round and is very easy on the hips. As with any dressing, the more oil and oil products you use to make it with the more fattening it is... this is one very light and very delicious salad with dressing you'll love. This is a big salad and can be altered to make a smaller salad, but don't forget you can always enjoy the leftovers tomorrow.
