I love eating salads in summer. So many fresh ingredients!! Here is a picture of our “salad bar” at home. On Sunday I prepare all the ingredients, hard boil the eggs, chop the veggies, etc.. Then at night when we are making lunches for the next day we pull them all out to make our salad.
Lettuce – go green! The darker the better
Raw veggie toppers – grated beet, carrot, sliced radish, bell peppers, scallions, cucumbers, avocado, celery
Something sweet – berries, dried fruit, avocado, brown rice, quinoa, chopped tomato, roasted beets, sweet potato
Fun crunchy or salty toppers – roasted garbanzo beans, coconut chips, croutons, nuts/seeds, olives, cocoa nibs
Protein – baked tofu, beans, hard boiled egg, light canned tuna/sardine/salmon, grilled chicken
Favorite store bought dressings – Braggs vinaigrette, Primal Kitchen all flavors
