I’m always looking for delicious, healthy, and quick lunch recipes! How about you?
I had to share this one because it’s a winner in all three categories.
Plus, you can use it as a jumping-off point for including other ingredients. Roasted red peppers, feta cheese, or pepitas would be delicious additions!
TIP #1: If you want to boost the protein, just add 1 or 2 more hard-boiled eggs.
TIP #2: As written, this isn’t the best make-ahead salad because of the avocado, which can turn color and get extra-mushy if it sits for more than a couple of hours. Either leave out the avocado or add it just before eating!
Energizing Protein-Powered Salad
(makes 2-4 servings)
In a large bowl, add the vinegar, mustard, garlic, salt, and pepper. Gradually add the oil, whisking until well combined.
Add the salad greens, chickpeas, celery, carrot, avocado, and eggs and toss to coat with dressing.
All that’s left to do is sit down and devour it. :)
Let me know what you think.
I’ve got a fantastic lunch recipe for you that’s fast and easy … and it’s loaded with anti-inflammatory ingredients.
From the leafy greens to the colorful veggies to the delicious dressing, you’re going to want to add this into your regular rotation.
This is also super delicious with salmon instead of tuna.
TIP: Try using the leftover dressing as a dipping sauce. SO GOOOOD!
For the dressing:
Make the dressing: Mix all the ingredients well in a small bowl, using a fork or whisk.
Assemble the salad: Toss the greens with the dressing in a bowl, then top with the tuna, beans, and other veggies. Toss lightly and enjoy!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do! It’s one of my go-to’s, especially on warm days.
