Spinach Romaine salad with Tunafish

Eileen Hineline


Being diabetic and choosing the correct foods for any meal is not easy, I decided to have salads for lunch and came up with this salad. I get so much energy after I eat this, the lemon juice is a nice touch and gives the salad a nice fresh zip to it and it is nice to pass on the salad dressing now and then. My sons enjoy the salad with salmon and chicken on top too.
You can add chopped mushrooms if you like too but I love this salad as is. Very good, flavorful and healthy!
