Golden Sunshine Salad
This salad reminds me of Matisyahu's song Golden Sunshine because it makes me happy when I look at it, just like the song makes me happy when I hear it.  It is full of crunch and color!  It's easy and nutritionally complete.

1/2 bag of frozen peas (no need to thaw as they will thaw by the time the slad is finished being made)
1 can drained corn
1 can drained garbanzo beans
3 stalks of celery chopped up
4 carrots chopped (I used my Ninja food processor)
1 yellow bell pepper chopped (again, used the ninja)
1 handful raisins
1 can chopped water chestnuts
1 small handful of dehydrated onions.  

Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl and dress with your favorite infused balsamic vinegar.  I use Alessi's White Ginger.

Winter Cheer Up Salad ( I did have a picture for this one)
2 Romaine Hearts finely chopped
1 large handful of Half and Half Mix (This is a Walmart product of baby greens and baby spinach)
1 can drained navy beans
10 cherry tomatoes chopped in half
1/4 sweet onion chopped
1/2 bag frozen peas (wash with warm water to thaw out and then just put into salad)
1 chopped red bell pepper
1 chopped orange bell pepper
1 T Mrs. Dash Herb and Onion 
1/4 c raisins
1 T lemon juice
1 t lime juice
1/4 t Sweet Leaf Stevia
1/4 c red wine vinegar (or to taste)

Mix all of the ingredients in a very large bowl.  It makes enough to feed 8 people.  If you don't have 8 people to eat it, eat it yourself for breafast lunch and dinner.  It's full of everything you need to get through a busy day.
