If you are trying to eat lighter in the new year, this salad can help you meet your nutritional goals. It includes lean beef and a bit of cheddar for protein, oranges and tomatoes for flavor and a punch of vitamin C, pecans for healthy fat and crunch, all atop a delicious spring mix of greens that offer your body nutrients like iron and vitamin K.
A homemade creamy balsamic vinaigrette tops it all off perfectly.
