This salad combines the fresh bounty of zesty spring greens with a trio of beans for a filling, nourishing and uplifting lunch. It also makes a lovely and healthy side for dinner. Citrus and garlic add extra flavor and the cheese crumbles mellow it out wonderfully. You can substitute any wild or bitter greens that you have on hand and bring spring right into your kitchen! This salad tastes even better if you eat it outside on a warm day.

“This program is a way of life, one which I have adopted successfully, and more importantly one which I have sustained for over one year now. My weight remains steady at 160 pounds (down from 216). My energy levels rival that of someone 20 years younger than me (I’m now 57), enabling me to exercise in any way that I desire, from lifting weights to intense cardio sessions.”
— Michael Little
“After completing my 10-week program, I had a regularly-scheduled appointment with my doctor. Because my cholesterol has always been above the normal range (229 last year) I requested that she test it again this year. I’m happy to report that my total cholesterol dropped to 169, which is in the normal range, and all my other numbers improved as well.”
