Food First: A Super Spring Salad


One of my favorite healthy food strategies is to make a couple of “grab and go” salads for the week. I love this one because it has plenty of protein and veggies to give you lots of energy throughout the day.

This salad is great all on its own, or on a bed of lettuce greens, or even popped into a wrap or pita along with some avocado. Enjoy it however you like as a snack, lunch or after work-out treat. It’s also great as a potluck picnic salad to share with friends. Enjoy!
