It’s salad time.
Let’s do this.
And let’s do it right.
You need your salad to be 3 things:
1. Delicious – You just aren’t going to eat it if it’s not delicious. And food is meant to be enjoyed, so your salads need to be mouth-wateringly delicious.
2. Satisfying – If you’re going to make your salad a meal, then it’s needs to leave feeling satisfied. You need to be feeling energized after that salad.
3. Nutritious – This is pretty to easy to do by making sure to focus on variety and always starting with a base of leafy greens.
This salad serves 4-6 as a side dish and 1 as a main dish meal.
4 cups baby spinach
1 small avocado, diced
1 small apple, any variety you have on hand
2 whole small cooked beets, diced
1 cup chickpeas
4 walnut halves, chopped
juice of 1 lemon
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
Toss spinach, avocado and lemon juice together really well. This allows the avocado to cling to the spinach leaves. Add the rest of the ingredients and toss well again. Dig in enjoy!
