JazzyRaw's Sock-it-to-Ya Salad

This salad is named for that ground-breaking show, Laugh-In. Some of you may be old enough to remember it. I tried to embed a video without success. You can check it out on YouTube. Again this picture is only a representation. (Aren't the flowers pretty?) Instead of sockin' it to ya with laughs, this salad socks it to ya with great taste and serious nutrition.

JazzyRaw's Sock-it-to-Ya Salad

Include the following ingredients in whatever quantities suit you.

Lettuce (spring mix, red or romaine), shredded
Grape tomatoes, halved
Sugar Snap Peas, cut into bite size pieces
Red, orange or yellow pepper, cut into bit size pieces (for that all important crunch)
Pepitas (that's pumpkin seeds to you!)
Thompson raisins (adds a touch of sweetness)
Sliced raw olives (optional)

Combine ingredients and toss with your favorite salad dressing.

Of course there are many other items you can include but this is my favorite basic salad that I enjoy on a regular basis. It may become your favorite too.
