Because I created this recipe in a hospital cafeteria, of all places, that's where the name came from! Yeah...I know it's a weird name for a salad. I've been eating it for years and have yet to come up with a fancy or even just descriptive name. "Romaine, carrot, onion, kidney bean, broccoli and sun-dried tomato vinaigrette salad" although pretty descriptive, isn't exactly what I had in mind. I just call it my favorite healthy salad.

I think you'll enjoy it! Use whatever other ingredients or dressing(s) you like, sometimes I even add some sliced black olives, diced tomatoes and sub out black beans for the kidney beans. Even some roasted corn kernels might be nice.

How to Make Hospital Salad (it's good and good for you!)

Step-by-Step

  1. In a small bowl, mix 1 part Fat Free Sun Dried Tomato vinaigrette dressing (I use Newman's Own or Ken’s Steakhouse brand) and mix w/2 parts Fat Free or low fat ranch dressing (I use Hidden Valley brand or Wishbone Light Done Right).
