SALAD BINGO

Salad fatigue is a thing, people. I try to eat leafy greens often, but coming up with new ideas for serving them can be a challenge. Then it occurred to me that every salad I whip together has more or less the same five elements (greens, protein, nuts, veggies, dressing). So here’s a helpful little grid with some of my favorite ingredients to mix it up. Let me know which combination is your favorite!

    I first had quinoa in my salad a few years ago + it’s still one of my favorite ways to amp up a salad that’s totally boring. Thanks for these salad dressing recipes! I always want to make my own, but sometimes finding the right proportion is tough. xo
