Healthy&Fresh Dinner Salad

29 Jun

Sometimes, you just want a big salad for dinner.

The problem: salads don’t fill one up and satisfy as a meal in itself most times

The solution: a huge, fresh salad creation full of fiber filling ingredients, and topped with a protein to keep that stomach satisfied!

I made this salad for my mom the other night, and she loved it! She was completely satisfied the whole night..of course, until I made her my healthy chocolate protein mug cake(recipe on site)!

If you’re wanting a lighter meal, this is a great option. If you’re wanting a more filling, satisfying meal, this is still great, just add a big serving of protein on top! Grilled chicken, salmon, or even steak would be yummy.
