Super Easy Salads
This picture of this salad was so popular on my personal Facebook page, that I decided to blog about it. It is very easy to put together, I think that's why the last couple of years I love salads. Or maybe it's the fact that we moved to Florida and I don't want to heat my kitchen with complicated meals. I think it's a little bit of both, plus being in a warm climate makes me want to eat cool foods. Making salads is so versatile, you just have to have on hand different ingredients, fresh, dried, canned, and frozen. You put a little of this and a little of that. Here is one of my purchases from a recent shopping trip. I usually have on hand a bag of baby spinach and a bag of either spring mix or romaine, that is my base. For this salad I added tomatoes, strawberries, craisins, and added balsamic vinaigrette. I topped it with wild salmon that was broiled with a little lemon pepper and olive oil. I was going to put honey but I got lazy, lol. On the side I served myself a slice of whole wheat bread with hummus. You can put whatever you like in your salads and you will not go wrong. Other things I like to have on hand are mushrooms, canned beans, frozen green beans and avocado. This is a super quick meal, so give it a try and good luck with eating healthier everyday. What things do you like to add to your salads? For more info on making healthy salads check this previous post, Are You Tired of Same Lunch Salad.
