I adapted this recipe from one I found online at nourishmovelove.com. The original recipe was delicious, but I found it a little one dimensional and needed something. What it needed was meat and a higher fat content. 😉
Also, this recipe was converted to make a really enormous amount of salad because I was meal prepping.
Mix all of this in a large bowl:
- 1 cup cooked quinoa
- 4 cups broccoli kale salad (I bought bagged salad from Super Target!)
- 1/2 cup diced cucumber, diced
- 1/2 cup red onion, diced
- 1/2 cup avocado, diced
- 1 lemon, freshly squeezed
- 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
Toss the salad with the dressing. Top with 3 ounces of grilled chicken or tuna fish and a handful of sliced almonds.
This literally took only a few minutes to prepare once the quinoa had been made the night before.
