One thing I do just about every night Mon – Thur, is a big salad! While that may become redundant for many, that all depends how you approach making a salad. The biggest thing I tell my clients in nutrition counseling, is that you have to mix it up. If you make the same thing day in and day out, no matter what it is, your tastebuds are bound to get bored.
What’s fab about this salad? Everything! It’s packed with fiber, flavor, its savory, but sweet, has texture with the nuts, you can add a grain or greens if desired, makes for the perfect side dish, you can enjoy warm too, can easily be made in bulk, perfect for fall and winter, the dressing can be used with other dishes, and it’s just so good!
