Good Salad...Even Better when some veggies are roasted. Good salad that makes you feel full right away. I ate this as the menu stated ... then I tried it with some of the vegetables roasted (spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, zucchini, celery (subbed for cucumber), cherry tomatoes, squash, and carrot). Tasted good hot on cold romaine lettuce with a fried egg on top. Egg yolk eliminated the need for dressing.

Love the recipe but I can't make it for less than $6 like it says even shopping at Aldi or Walmart.

This salad would be very expensive to make. A bag or a bunch of spinach in the winter is at least $4.00. This salad would cost way more than $5.91 Probably closer to $20.00
