Salads That’ll Fill You Up All Day
For many home cooks, salads are just an afterthought, not the star of the show. And all too often, they are less than exciting – a sad bowl of greens you have to suffer through so you can get to the stuff you really want. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Enter…the Power Salad. Basically, you take your average salad and dial up the protein, fibre and texture with a hearty mix of grains, legumes and tasty add-ins. The result? A crave-worthy, filling salad that isn’t just yummier than your average “rabbit food”…it’s better for you, too!
Start with a base of leafy greens, then add your protein, grains and legumes of choice. Jazz things up with some fresh fruits and veggies, yummy add-ins and a dash of healthy fats. Then, pick a fabulous dressing to pull it all together.
So, want to try your hand at whipping up a salad that eats like a meal? Here are a few ideas to get you started. And once you get the hang of it, you’ll be dreaming up your own custom creations in no time…
