This Easy Everyday Salad, is literally so easy and perfect for an everyday type of meal. Nothing too fancy, no cooking required, just a good simple salad that I think everyone needs to know how to make. It is also SO versatile, you can literally add anything you like to it. Lately I have been adding marinated chicken (marinated in tamari sauce), it’s so yum!
Add an optional protein source such as chicken, salmon, eggs, black chickpeas.
Bulk up this salad with extra carbs by adding cooked quinoa, roast sweet potato or roast pumpkin.
If you can’t get your hands on a ripe avocado, add another healthy fat such as olive oil or an extra spoonful of tahini.
This salad is also super tasty with Cashew Aioli mixed through it.
If you are making this for your work lunch, make the salad the night before and pour the dressing into a small container. When you are ready to eat it, simply mix the dressing through.
