In summer, the go-to dish for me is salad. Sometimes I toss everything together (avocado, egg whites, nuts, craisins, whatever), add lettuce and dive in. And sometimes I just want a bowl of mixed baby greens with extra virgin olive oil, a sprinkle of kosher salt and a squeeze of lemon. Salads are perfect for lunch and dinner. Come to think of it, breakfast too. Also snacks. Load in some lean protein and you’ve got a full meal.
Pull these classic ingredients off a heavy bagel, ditch the cream cheese, and make this a light salad with the flavor combos you love.
Add a sprinkle of taco chips to top off this fiesta with a crunch.
You won’t miss waiting in line at the deli when your bowl’s filled with this salad.
Leftover BBQ or roast chicken in the fridge? Don’t throw it out—try this!
