Colorful Salad


#EatYourGreens! Salads rule summer. With the bounty of fresh fruits & vegetables available combined with the lack of cooking (and hence heating your kitchen) required, it’s no wonder. I personally love a good salad because there’s so much you can do to it. Salads are like snowflakes. No two are ever exactly the same.

When building my go-to weeknight salads, the goal is as much color as possible with things that in the fridge/pantry. I try to include the following:

  • Leafy green items (lettuce, arugula, spinach, etc.)
  • Peppers
  • Nuts
  • Dried fruit (prunes, craisins, apricots, etc.)
  • Olives
  • Cheese
  • Meat (usually only if I have leftovers from another meal)
  • Dressing

What’s your favorite salad?
