"This super nutritious salad features leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables, fresh berries, unsalted nuts, and a zesty dressing."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This salad tastes good but I ended up leaving many of the ingredients out or lessening portions because of the calorie count per serving.
Oh My!! Terrific. A meal salad for sure.
If you don't like cumin, this dressing is not for you. Although not all my company enjoyed it, I loved the dressing. My salad consisted of out-of-the-bag spring greens (mesclun) and baby spinach onto which I tossed a couple of handfuls of blueberries, red and green grapes and mandarin oranges. The salad was surprisingly delicious. If I had added chickpeas and a piece of bread, I would have considered the salad a complete meal. To save calories and fat just omit the cheese and peanuts.
This salad has beautiful colors. I love that it's healthy. I didn't have cabbage or cauliflower, so I left it out, but it was still delicious. I would have loved the crunch from the cabbage though. I might use sliced almonds instead of peanuts next time, as I think it would compliment the salad even better. Make the dressing ahead of time, so the flavors have a chance to blend and don't forget the cumin! It adds wonderful flavor the dressing.
The cumin just doesn't belong. I'll keep looking for a citrus-ginger dressing.
