Salad Ingredients

2 cups lettuce, coarsely diced
3 stalks green onion, 1/4-inch slices
1 medium tart green apple, 1/4-inch cubes
1 medium sweet red apple, 1/4-inch cubes
1 small grapefruit, segments cut into thirds
2 small or 1 large ripe banana, 1/4-inch slices
2 cups miniature marshmallows
1 cup raw unsalted trail mix

Salad Method

Combine ingredients in a large bowl. Toss to mix thoroughly. Stir in Nameless salad dressing (below) 15-20 minutes before serving. Lightly toss until salad is evenly coated.

Dressing Ingredients

1/3 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1/3 cup extra-lowfat sour cream
1/4 cup nonfat Italian dressing
1/4 cup lowfat mayonnaise
1/4 cup mild-flavored honey (orange or avocado)

Dressing Method

Combine all ingredients in any order. Blend lightly with a wire whip just until dressing is uniform and smooth. Beating will make the dressing too thin.
