If you have a small selection of salad fixings, it’s so EASY to pull lunch together!
Start with field greens, I always buy box ones instead of in a bag, they ‘last’ longer. Then toppings like mini sweet peppers, sugar snap, cucumber, radish for color & crunch. Tomatoes, carrots, cut them in different shapes for variety.
Key is to have some protein to give you energy. I often have leftovers but also roast chicken, salmon or chicken sausage are typical.
Buy a few different salad dressings to keep your palate revved! I like making my own vinaigrette, so easy, I’ll post separately.
Last, add some nuts like walnuts, toasted pumpkin seeds, black or white sesame seeds.
If you need a little carb, go for baked sweet potato, quinoa, couscous or leftover brown or red rice. Just add to salad. You’ll find all these will bulk up your salad bowl and fills you up!
If I feel like spicy, I’ll add Lingham’s chili sauce or Yuzupao, wakes up your taste buds and oh so yummy, enjoy!
