Fruit And Veggie Salad

  This is a salad I like to make to have when I'm out in the field all day!

  • 1 can drained fruit cocktail
  • 1/4 cup each finely cut onion, celery, red pepper and mixed nuts ( I use pecans, pumpkin, sunflower seed)
  • 1/8 cup raisins
  Cook veggies in a pan with a little vegetable stock about 5 minutes until softened. Add nuts and raisins, allow to cool. Pour fruit cocktail into veggies and mix well. Put mixture into covered containers and place in fridge. Place a container in a cool pack along with your favorite cold drinks and your ready to go!

Kale and Artichoke Salad

Here's a salad that tastes good cold or warm; or serve it as a side dish. Enjoy! 

  • 4 cups baby kale chopped

  • Italian salad dressing
