When it comes to eating healthily, salad is most people’s idea of a perfect meal. Loaded with vegetables and low in calories, it’s a meal made for weight loss. But, in my experience, salads are often terribly boring! A plateful of lettuce and grilled chicken might be healthy but it’s not a very exciting meal. No wonder that a lot of people get bored of salads so quickly.
This salad is different; it’s not just tasty, it’s also very easy to make and still super-healthy. I eat this recipe at least once a week, and I never feel like I’m getting bored of it.
If you want to make salad part of your daily diet but don’t want it to be boring, make sure you try this recipe. It’s got the Sarah stamp of approval!
