One request I keep getting is to post more salad ideas. It can get very boring eating the same old salad day after day and expecting to stick with this so called “healthy eating.” Well I am here to help you with that journey, because I too, have a hard time with salads unless you buy it in the package. I am picky, and I never seem to have all the right ingredients to make it work.
So we will start with the Feta Spring Salad! This Salad is a quick yummy salad that you can take with you on the go to work, or make for a nice side salad with dinner. This salad keeps you surprisingly full, so it is a great high protein, calorie cutting meal.
- 1 handful of salad spring mix ( I prefer Organic as it is usually the same price!)
- 1/3 diced tomato
- 4-5 chopped baby carrots
- handful of chopped peanuts
- sprinkle of black pepper
- Sprinkle of feta cheese
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1 tbs balsamic vinegar
This salad is best prepared in a container with a lid so you can shake it all together and mix the dressing really good! Start with your spring mix in a bowl and add the diced tomato, baby carrots, nuts, feta and pepper and mix. Then add your olive oil and balsamic vinegar, sprinkling them all around the salad. Secure a lid over the salad bowl (or a small plate) and shake it all up! This salad is completely vegetarian, and is vegan without the feta.
