We just made this salad at the Healthy Changes Cooking Class we held Monday evening - mmm mm good! I thought it would be great to share this delicious recipe with you!
Salads are still healthy – very healthy – IF they are loaded with rich greens, raw veggies, and lean protein. This salad is exactly that, full of all the right ingredients, and super tasty. Just squeeze a little lime over the top, and if using dressing, you only need a tablespoon drizzle. The salad itself is so tasty, you don’t need much dressing for taste!
