This hearty salad is rich in lutein and indoles. It provides each person with three and a half servings of vegetables. Served with a cup of soup, it makes a filling and delicious dinner. The marinated vegetables and croutons may be prepared ahead of time.

• 1 cup small, bite-sized cauliflower pieces (use fresh or thawed frozen)
• 1 cup sliced button mushrooms
• 8 stalks fresh asparagus, sliced on the diagonal into bite-sized pieces (about 1 cup)
• 1 14-ounce can quartered artichoke hearts in water, drained
• 1/2 cup reduced-fat red wine vinaigrette or Italian dressing, divided
• 4 slices white or sourdough bread, with crust cut off
and bread sliced into bite-sized cubes
• 5 cups tightly packed spinach leaves (about 6 ounces),
sliced into bite-sized pieces


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Steam or microwave together cauliflower, mushrooms and asparagus until asparagus is tender-crisp.
Place in a medium bowl with artichoke hearts and toss with 3 tablespoons dressing.
Cover and refrigerate.

Spread bread cubes in a shallow glass pan and toss with 2 tablespoons vinaigrette.
Bake 10 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool.
