cooking light yummy salad

i gave kevin the best of cooking light for his birthday this past year. it is a great resource of over 500 of cooking light's best recipes. yum. we made this salad last week, it was grand.

field salad with roasted leeks, mushrooms, and feta:
1 cup thinkly sliced leek
1 teaspoon olive oil
cooking spray
3 cups trimmed arugula (about 3 ounces)
3 cups fresh spinach leaves
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup crumbled feta
3 tablespoons bottled light dill-mustard dressing (we actually made our own dressing with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, juice from 1 lemon, and a tablespoon of dijon mustard)

1. preheat the over to 450
2. combine sliced leek and olive oil. spread leek mixture into a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray. bake leek mixture at 450 for 10 minutes or until browned. combine the leek mixture, arugula, spinach, sliced mushrooms, and crumbled feta cheese in a large bowl. drizzle with the dill-mustard dressing, and toss gently to coat. yield: 4 servings
