3 Easy, Delicious, Healthy Salad Combinations

I eat salad every day.

The interesting part is, I never order salad at a restaurant. I love making them at home.  Mixing all my favorite foods in one dish is one of the best creations of all time, and I’ve mastered some favorites.

I go hard on these 3 salad combo’s but feel free to mix them up in new, different ways.  That’s how I never get sick of salad!

No need to be fancy or time consuming to be delicious.  I mix mine fresh for a quick lunch almost every single day.

To summarize: I have leaves, beans, cheese, salt, pepper, garlic, olive oil, limes, avocado, & celery or carrots on hand at all times.  Makes life SO easy.    And the best part of making salads at home is that you can add more (or less) of ingredients you really like.  When I make a salad for Wafiq I double the beans, onions, and cheese.  When I make salads for me I go heavy on the leaves, lime juice & avocados.  We’re so lucky to have a kitchen w/so many wonderful ingredients.

Anyone have any interesting salad combo’s?!

Ps.  The new fall TV series lineup has me anxious. I have them recorded & have been waiting to catch up – see which ones are worthy of my time now that I finished The American’s.  (Did you know the lead actors in The American’s are actually married in real life?  Doesn’t that make the series even better?!?)

Have a fantastic week and be thoughtful <3
