So Fresh Summer Salad

I can’t be the only one who finds it hard to cook meals in the summer heat! I love everything about this season (okay, maybe not the bugs and frizzy hair) but the sun, heat, beach, and fresh produce make summer a wonderful time. Over the last 1-2 weeks though, the extreme temperatures we’ve had  definitely zapped my eagerness to sit in the kitchen cooking up new meals. Hence this post.

I used to think of salads as being rabbit food, but they are so versatile and quick to put together, and a great way to get in some extra vegetables!

 

Summer Salad

For 1 Person:

1 Cup Baby Spinach

2 Cups Mixed Baby Romaine

1/4 Cup Carrots, Julienned or Chopped

1/4 Cup Zucchini, Julienned or Chopped

Cucumber, Sliced

1/3 Cup Cooked Quinoa

1/2 Cup Cooked Lean Ground Turkey

2 Tb Shredded White Cheddar Cheese

Assemble as you wish and garnish with dressing or spices.

I opted for Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb
