I know I’ve already talked about taco salad in my Meatless Monday segment, but I think salad is different enough to post on here.
It’s a pretty cheap meal (for two people) and it’s sooo easy to pull together that it’s a great “I don’t have time to make dinner” meal. We got enough stuff to make salad twice so I think it’s a great deal. And you get your veggies for the day, which everyone needs to eat more of.
- Fresh spinach
- Lettuce bag (or whatever kind of lettuce you want, chopped up)
- Baby tomatoes
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 1/2 red pepper, chopped
- Can of black beans, drained and washed (or your choice of beans)
- Optional: can of corn
- Dressing (I suggest ranch)
- Add ingredients to your bowl, as much as you want of everything. Add some dressing.
I think it would be good with croutons, but those usually aren’t that healthy so I haven’t bought any yet. Maybe next time!
