Store For Four (Or Five) Days

Screw it! Make sure the lid is tight and refrigerate your salad creation for up to 5 days. That’s right, you can layer up lunches for the entire week all on Sunday night ladies. Just remember – proteins, cheeses and soft fruits/veggies go right on top the day of.

Get Crazy Creative

Clearly I love a good salad, so the more creative the better. I tossed a few things around in the kitchen just for you boo, so here are my three favorite creations. Try them out and don’t forget to load all the ingredients in the order listed:

Santa Fe Fun

1 Tbsl light ranch dressing

1 Tbls balsamic vinegar

1/4 cup cucumbers

1/4 cup red peppers

2 Tbls red onion

1/4 cup black beans

2 oz grilled chicken

1 oz cheddar cheese

1/4 cup corn

1/3 medium avocado

4-5 romaine hearts

Serve with a serving of tortilla chips on the side. Or if you want a little crunchy, crush them on top.

C3 Chinese Chicken Creation

2 Tbls sesame ginger dressing (or comparable)

1/4 cup celery

1/4 cup red peppers

1/4 cup edamame (cooked and shelled)

2 oz grilled chicken

1/3 cup mandarin oranges

2 Tbls sliced almonds

2 cups spring mix or shredded napa cabbage

Serve with wonton strips sprinkled top if you like momma.

Mediterranean Dream

1 Tbls balsamic vinegar

1 Tbls olive oil

1/2 medium lemon (juiced)

1/4 cup cucumbers

1/4 cup red peppers

1 Tbls red onion

1/4 cup kidney beans

3 oz tuna or salmon

2 oz feta cheese

2 oz artichokes

8-10 olives

6-7 cherry tomatoes (halved)

Love this with pita bread and hummus. Yum!
