I love making salads. Like really good, full of flavour, restaurant style salad with all the goodies in them. Fresh, flexible, easy enough to throw together and complex enough to be a full meal. This collection of recipes will make Meal Planning: Salads for Supper a breeze! Don’t forget to PIN before you leave, so you can make them ALL.
Choose any Ethnic flavour profile you love, and work with those ingredients and the possibilities are endless. Best of all? They are healthy, prepaheadable and a great way to use leftovers. They also make a great take to work lunch that puts those store bought salads to shame.
Salads for Supper also work extremely well for busy schedules and picky eaters. Everyone can assemble their own, choosing their own toppings and dressing when they are ready to eat. This reduces dinner time stress and everyone has a Salad for Supper that they are guaranteed to enjoy!
Salad Greens options:
chopped iceberg salad from a bag works great
chopped romaine lettuce
Use an one, or a combination of two or three of these greens to get good variety and better nutrients. The darker the green, the better it is for you.
TIP: If you want to make dinner time a breeze, prepare all your Supper time salad ingredients ahead of time on Prep Day, store in a nice divided container in the fridge and let everyone “Build their Own”
