For lunch, I make a salad for my husband and I a minimum of 4 days per week. Consuming salad every day, for us, is extra about getting our vitamins and fiber from uncooked veggies than about being a weight loss program meals. Our salads differs every day relying what’s within the fridge. Originally of the week I will prep quite a lot of veggies in order that I can simply pull collectively a salad every day. I additionally like so as to add boiled eggs, cooked hen, avocado and even left over steak for some protein. Relating to salad dressing, I like home made. My go to dressing is ranch and this simple recipe is my favourite. I all the time have these elements available as a result of I make it about as soon as per week. Ranch dressing is probably not the healthiest salad dressing however it’s so good and I consider, the whole lot sparsely.
As we speak our salad was full of so many veggies you’ll be able to hardly see the lettuce!
I like my OXO salad spinner. After I wash and spin dry my lettuce, what ever is left I simply retailer within the fridge within the basket/bowl with the lid on for the subsequent day.
