My Cucumber and Tomato Salad

 


Image of Cucumber-tomato-salad-10I still had some baby spinach left to use in my refrigerator, so I decided to create a salad with stuff I had left in my frig.  It turned out to be a fairly basic green salad but still very good.  I’m loving having these salads with my meals.  It helps me get my veggies into my diet.  I also have found a nice ranch dressing also that is low carb and I’m enjoying using a prepared dressing.

 

Ingredients

  • Spinach leaves organic washed
  • Cucumbers 1 large, sliced into round
  • Grape tomatoes, sliced in half – 1/2 cup
  • Shredded cheddar cheese, about 1/2 cup
  • Blueberries – about 1/3 cup
  • Olive oil, 2-3 tablespoons
  • Ranch dressing  2-6 tablespoons
