Ingredients   In this order:
2 Tbsp Low-Fat Dressing
1/4 Cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 Cup chopped baby portabello mushrooms
2 radishes, cut into half moons
1/2 large tomato, chopped
1 small cucumber cut into half moons
spinach, as much to fill

Directions:

  1. Place all the ingredients in that order (keep the dressing on the bottom- the oil from the dressing makes lettuce leaves wilt). Cap it.
  2. When ready, just shake and serve.
